VIAVI Opens New State-of-the-Art Facility in New York
In anticipation of growth in the 3D imaging and sensing market, and to further enhance support of our Optical Security and Performance Products customers, VIAVI has completed construction of a new manufacturing plant and cleanroom facility in Henrietta, New York. The new plant replaces a facility formerly operated by RPC Photonics, which VIAVI acquired in 2018, tapping into the dynamic optics, photonics and imaging ecosystem in the Greater Rochester region.
The expanded facility provides enhanced product development and manufacturing capabilities, including a new state-of-the-art cleanroom. The investment further advances the VIAVI position as a global leader in high-performance custom optics, providing light management solutions for the consumer electronics, automotive, industrial, and government markets.
The VIAVI acquisition of RPC Photonics expanded the company’s leadership in the 3D sensing space, which is further solidified with this expansion and modernization in Monroe County, New York. The Empire State Development (ESD) and Greater Rochester Enterprise organizations were instrumental in this expansion in a region renowned for its talent in optics technology.
