Foley, Fresnel Optics president announced today. "Our goal is to have Rui Fei Optics become the base of operation for all Fresnel Optics’ Asian business. This acquisition, together with our existing facilities in North American and Germany, broadens the capabilities and presence of Fresnel Optics throughout the world”.

Fresnel Optics is a Rochester based manufacturing company, which develops, manufactures and markets microstructured optical components for the display industry, digital projection industry, lighting industry and photographic marketplace. The Rui Fei factory will produce optical components such as Fresnel lens systems for overhead projectors, primarily for the Asian market.
