ORLANDO, FL / ACCESSWIRE / October 3, 2023 / LightPath Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:LPTH) ('LightPath,' the 'Company,' or 'we'), a leading vertically integrated global manufacturer and integrator of proprietary optical and infrared technologies, today announced the completion of the Company's expansion and renovation of their facility in Orlando. With over $5 million invested, the facility's total footprint grew from 34,000 square feet to 55,000 square feet.
Within the expanded footprint, the Company was able to nearly triple its cleanroom space from 4,000 square feet to 11,700 square feet, increasing the Company's capacity to support the strategically important assemblies and camera sub-systems businesses. The two Orlando facilities were consolidated into one as part of the renovation, streamlining manufacturing processes. In addition, 6,500 square feet was added to dedicated engineering space, with most of that composing lab space. Additional room to expand glass manufacturing, including coating and assembly, was prepared for future use.
'We are excited to announce the completion of this long-term investment in our U.S. manufacturing operations,' says Sam Rubin, CEO of LightPath Technologies. 'By upgrading our manufacturing space, we can increase production efficiency and reduce lead times for our customers. The upgraded area provides for future production growth as our company requires additional capabilities.
'This expansion was largely made possible with the support of our investors who believe in the strategy we embarked on years ago to evolve LightPath Technologies to an optical solutions and systems provider.'
