Trioptics has founded a US subsidiary, Trioptics Inc, and acquired Davidson Optronics, a manufacturer of high precision optical test equipment.
Trioptics Inc will sell Trioptics' products and will provide application support and service in the USA. The company is located at Davidson Optronics' headquarters in West Covina, California. Mildex, Trioptics' previous distributor, will continue selling these products in North East USA.
Davidson Optronics continues operating as a standalone company, but will cooperate closely with Trioptics. A joint development for high precision electronic autocollimators has already begun. Furthermore, Davidson Optronics products will now be distributed by Trioptics subsidiaries and partners in Europe and Asia.
'Davidson Optronics has a broad experience in the photonics market and its products supplement the Trioptics product portfolio,' said Eugen Dumitrescu, CEO of Trioptics.
Ron Hartmayer has been appointed as CEO of Davidson Optronics and Trioptics Inc, and he will ensure close cooperation between these companies as well as the seamless and transparent transition for the company's customers
