OPCO’s History

OPCO was founded in 1976 by our Chairman, Saverio (Sam) Maldari, to provide Optical Coating services to high technology companies specializing in analytical instrumentation and industrial systems. In the 1980’s, our growing base of customers sought a more complete solution from OPCO so we expanded operations to include Optical Fabrication and Optical Assemblies. With the optical technology applications continuing to increase in the 1990’s, OPCO added Replicated Mirrors and Ruled Gratings.

Ruled Diffractino Gratings

OPCO has always invested in state-of-the-art technologies and continues to expand our facilities by adding new manufacturing process equipment and quality control testing capabilities. Our precision optics are produced in a modern facility which utilizes CNC manufacturing in our fabrication department to box coaters employing Ion Assist Deposition in our optical coating department. Performance and specifications are assured using our advanced metrology equipment, including interferometers and spectrometers.

Our customer base has continued to grow in response to our full-service approach, from fabrication and replication through coatings and optical assemblies. Offering products and services over this complete range also enables us to control production processes in ways that improve quality, accuracy and consistency while maximizing cost-effectiveness for our customers.

The future looks bright as the value that optical technologies bring to our customers and our society continues to grow. OPCO is committed to staying at the forefront of optics technology and manufacturing.
