“We are now working even closer together,” Marcus Knöbel, Executive Vice President of SCHOTT’s Business Unit Advanced Optics and Samuel Sadoulet, President and COO of Edmund Optics, jointly stated. “This enhanced partnership enables both brands to provide many additional benefits to customers.”
Both companies have been working together for more than 30 years and this new partnership will ensure a globally optimal solution to respond to customer needs, especially for small quantities of customized polished optical glass filters. Inquiries for SCHOTT’s standard portfolio of optical filters can now be more easily processed through Edmund Optics. This expansion will also significantly increase the service profile of Edmund Optics’ German manufacturing facility, known as ITOS, that has had a long-term partnership with SCHOTT for over 20 years.
“This partnership will drive fast and easy access to components using SCHOTT materials in Europe and in a next step in China for both standard products and custom designs for prototype and small volume quantities, as well as high volumes.” says Knöbel. Sadoulet adds, “We will now be able to offer additional flexible solutions to our customers by applying our leading customer service to an even larger product range.”
Edmund Optics and SCHOTT officially expanded this partnership on June 17, 2020 with a “virtual handshake.” Watch the video on our website: www.edmundoptics.eu/schott
