Avo Photonics systems available in Europe

12 March 2010

Avo Photonics and German company AMS Technologies have entered into a distribution agreement that entitles AMS Technologies to represent Avo’s capabilities to the European market.

Avo Photonics, founded in 2003 in Pennsylvania, USA, provides advanced contract design, prototyping, and manufacturing services for photonic customers in the medical, military, aerospace,  communications and industrial markets.

Avo provides support from design through production. Its design team acts as an extension to the customer’s existing development group and creates optical, mechanical, thermal, electrical, and system engineering solutions while allowing the unique intellectual property generated to be owned by its customer.

In addition, within its facilities, Avo Photonics supports cost competitive production. Volumes can range from rapid prototypes to automated manufacturing of thousands per day. Avo’s demonstrated and field tested production capabilities include complex free-space optical assemblies; precision bonded die placement and fiber attach, and low to megawatt class optical power laser systems.

“Avo is experiencing significant growth in Europe, and we believe there are additional customer opportunities. We are confident that the professional and knowledgeable sales force of AMS Technologies along with the company’s excellent ties to the European electro-optics industry will enable us to boost our business in Europe”, says Neal Stoker, VP Sales and Marketing at Avo Photonics. “Avo will also profit from synergies with other product lines available from AMS”.
