WHO WE ARE
BUILDING ON A HISTORY OF INNOVATION
At Fosta-Tek Optics, our goal is to provide you with world-class quality optical products that meet or exceed not only national and international standards but the most important standard of all, yours.
History of Innovation
Fosta-Tek Optics delivers you the benefit of expertise, technologies and processes originally developed at the renowned Foster Grant company. Our current management team brings you their direct experience with Foster Grant’s engineering advancements in the early 1970’s from the introduction of molded acrylic lenses to the development of silicone hardcoats to protect the lenses from scratching.
Fosta-Tek Optics was founded in 1991 with the purchase of substantial manufacturing assets and intellectual property from Foster Grant. Today, we provide superior polymer-based optical products and solutions to industrial, military and OEM markets, including:
- Contract manufacturing
Breadth of Offerings
Across these key industries, we employ polymers in the primary optical thermoplastics:
- COP-Cyclic Olefin Polymer
- COC-Cyclic Olefin Copolymer
- PES Polyethersulfone
- ADC200 (Cast Resin)
Fosta-Tek Optics integrates several polymer-based core capabilities: optical engineering and tool design, optical molding, optical coatings, and cast optical plastics.
We’ve found that many of our customers are concerned with sustainable manufacturing processes and protecting the environment. So, we've implemented several eco-friendly systems over the years.
- Solar energy for lighting our front offices
- Recycled water for manufacturing
- Production equipment rated for reduced energy consumption
- Co-generation of heat reduced BTUs by 30%
- High-efficiency lighting, doors and windows
- Scrap materials are repurposed
- Infrared monitoring helps us prevent wasted energy.
