About Reflexite Display Optics
History

Reflexite Display Optics is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Reflexite Corporation of Avon, CT. Reflexite is an employee-owned (ESOP) company.

Reflexite Display Optics (formerly Fresnel Optics), located in Rochester, NY, is a globally operating company with over 35 years of technical experience. We grew from a major precision tool and die organization by developing the tooling and manufacturing processes for producing Fresnel overhead projector lenses. We were acquired by Reflexite Corporation in the mid 1980s as their sole source of retroreflective cube corner tooling.

After the acquisition, the Reflexite Precision Technology Center was created as a stand-alone core competency center, developing tooling exclusively for the Reflexite member companies. Master and microreplication personnel and equipment were moved out of the Display Optics location and into a world class facility in nearby West Henrietta, NY. Master capabilities include diamond-point turning, flycutting, ruling and holographic lithograpy of circular and linear micro (and sub micro) structures. Microreplication is accomplished with very low stress electroforming and plating processes.

In the early 1990s we established a second manufacturing facility, Fresnel Optics GmbH, in the former East German city of Apolda, Thuringia, Germany, to service the European marketplace.

During the 1990s we also purchased a new business of brightness enhancing screens for the photographic industry from a former customer. Our Beattie IntenscreenŽ line is primarily a consumer, after market, product. However, we have expanded this business to include some camera OEMs.

In early 2000s, Reflexite Display Optics entered the lighting industry to address the needs for using microstructured optics in architectural lighting for both aesthetics and glare free lighting and in helping the industry transition to LED based systems.

In early 2001, we purchased Wavelength Optics of Sacramento, CA. We used this purchase as the basis for expanding our product lines to include passive infrared Fresnel components and the optical engineering experience to target digital imaging lenses.
