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”.
