Avo Photonics, a leading provider of opto-electronic product design, development, and manufacturing services, has announced that it is now entering its 15th year of operation.

Dr. Joseph Dallas, President of Avo Photonics, commented: “Throughout our history Avo has maintained a consistent message of pure service for photonics design and manufacturing. We have been very fortunate to have maintained many of our core team members since the beginning, which has helped us to focus on our mission and achieve this level of longevity. Our continued investment in facilities, personnel and capabilities has allowed us to expand to meet the continuously growing demand for custom photonics components and systems.”

Avo Photonics was founded November, 2003 as an advanced opto-electronic design and contract manufacturing service company. Over the years Avo has increased support for its key market segments, which include Bio-Medical, Communications, Defense, Remote Sensing, Industrial Monitoring and LIDAR. Avo’s engineering and production are all based in North America, with its headquarters and manufacturing facilities in Pennsylvania and additional optical design facilities in Toronto, Canada.

“We are thankful to our customers who have trusted us with the responsibility to design and manufacture their critical products,” said Dr. Dallas. “From opto-mechanical, thermal and systems analysis, through sub-micron alignment manufacturing, our goal remains to provide stable, reliable manufacturing services and to truly become an extension of our customers’ companies.”

Avo is the photonics industry’s trusted source for exclusive, private label photonics design, development, and manufacturing. It produces confidential, client-owned optoelectronic solutions and products for military, aerospace, medical, communications and industrial application. Headquartered in greater Philadelphia with offices in Canada and European distribution, Avo was founded and still guided by laser physicists and engineers who blend critical, photonics-based disciplines into a single source for the conceptualizing, design, testing and producing of precision, rugged, optoelectronic components and assemblies. When the industry thinks Avo, they think Light. Precisely. Avo works with market leaders that demand strict confidentiality and advanced technology that address their rapidly evolving photonics needs.
