Enablers and forward thinkers

Achieving more with focus

We believe in the extraordinary possibilities offered by polymer optics - both technically and economically. With our plastic components, we can make our customers' products even better.

And our customers are changing the world with their products: brightening it up and putting the focus on what really matters, making it healthier and smarter, making people more mobile and their world more comfortable.

We have a share in all of this.

Enablers and forward thinkers

We take our customers' ideas further and use them to manufacture polymer optics for all areas of application. To do this, we are constantly pushing the limits of what is feasible in plastics technology. But limits are relative for us and we push them every day. The success of our customers is our top priority and our daily motivation.

From the first draft to series production, we solve technically complex challenges that no one else dares to tackle with the latest and most innovative technology, with passion, creativity and the highest precision.

We are the leading experts in polymer optics.
