Knight Optical’s Custom-Made Components Steal the Show at Photonics West11th Feb 2020
Yet another resounding success for the industry-leading supplier of premium-quality, on-spec optical components, Knight Optical has announced 2020’s Photonics West as a triumph.
From 4 to 6th February, two members of the Knight Optical USA team were on stand at the SPIE-organised event at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, California, to welcome attendees to the custom capabilities of the trusted component supplier.
This year’s event has presented us with further exponential growth for our high-quality, custom-made optical components; which a particular spike in demand for our high-performing renowned Infrared (IR) Optics.
Commenting on their popularity, USA Branch and Sales Manager, Courtney Buratczuk, said:
“All Knight Optical’s IR Optics were greatly received at Photonics West 2020; however, there was a distinct interest in our Silicon and Germanium components. Not only were visitors impressed by the ‘outstanding’ quality of these optics, but they were also enthralled by our ability to meet any specification with custom-made optical components for seamless integration with any application.
“It wasn’t just our IR Optics that garnered attention; there was a great deal of traffic on stand looking for ZnSe, Prisms, Aspheric Lenses and Beamsplitters; to name but a few. And, we very much look forward to working with brand-new customers on some of these custom-made optics – for, what will be, the most fascinating of projects.”
Courtney Buratczuk, and Technical Sales Advisor, Daniel Bousquet, received exceptional feedback from both new and existing customers regarding Knight Optical’s quality-first ethos, impressive in-house metrology testing abilities and the boundless opportunities offered by our custom-made optical components. As well as introducing new customers to the possibilities behind Knight Optical, Courtney and Daniel were also delighted to meet with a few familiar faces.
Speaking of the networking opportunities offered at this year’s event, Courtney said:
“Photonics West is one of the most-talked-about shows within the sector, and to be in the midst of a hub of photonics activity is not only inspiring but also further strengthens Knight Optical’s industry-leading status within the realm.
“Due to our global operation and thanks to high-status shows, such as Photonics West, these trade shows are fantastic opportunities to meet with long-standing customers and view some of the ground-breaking prototypes and final products that Knight Optical has helped to develop. Finally putting a face to a name with some of our customers and learning about how we have improved their supply chain practice is incredibly satisfying.”
Top-Tier Customer Service
However, it wasn’t only Knight Optical’s premium-quality components that were highly commended at the event; our first-class customer service and unparalleled technical knowledge were also recognised at this year’s event.
USA Technical Sales Adviser, Daniel Bousquet, adds:
“It’s always encouraging to receive such positive reviews from customers; however, the response from Photonics West attendees has been truly outstanding. To hear just how we’ve assisted and alleviated pressure on those working within the photonics sector is undoubtedly rewarding. What’s more, new faces to Knight Optical were also extremely enthused over Knight Optical’s custom-made components, in-house state-of-the-art Metrology Laboratory and attention to detail.
“Suffice to say, this year’s Photonics West has further established Knight Optical’s permanence of support for the innovations taking place within the photonics sector, and I’m delighted to be a part of such a forward-thinking, notable business.”
Knight Optical’s CEO, Colin Overton, concluded:
“It is with great pleasure that I announce this year’s Photonics West a success. As a long-standing supporter of the sector and with the optics and photonics sector working so diligently together, it’s fantastic to be recognised as a trusted, dependable supplier within this close-knit community.
“The feedback gained has been tremendous and to welcome so many new customers to the capabilities behind the Knight Optical brand is positively pushing our growth and reach both deeper into the sector and further afield. As we continue into 2020, I look forward to introducing more photonics professionals to the high quality we stand by at Knight Optical.”
