Avo Photonics, specialists in optical packaging, design and contract manufacturing is pleased to announced the expansion of its services through the relocation of its Toronto, Canada facility. 

The new facility, with enhanced opto-electronic characterization and prototyping capability, is an ideal location to support ongoing efforts in the Canadian market. While primary manufacturing and design efforts continue in the Company’s headquarters in Horsham, PA, the new Toronto facility provides an additional clean and stable environment necessary for precise laser and optical component characterization. 

According to Dr. Joseph Dallas, President of Avo Photonics, “Though all these capabilities also exist within the PA facility, the expanded Canadian services provide strategically located support and overall additional Avo capacity.” 

Additionally the new facility is in close proximity to Innovative Engineering Solutions (IENSO), one of Avo Photonics’ partners in electronic design and production. Opto-electronic customers seeking fully integrated, low-cost solutions in the commercial and test markets will benefit from this close relationship. 

Dr. Tom Haslett, CTO Avo Photonics, commented that “the new Avo facility is ideal for serving our expanding Canadian customer base; its close proximity to other high tech companies affords Avo Photonics unique benefits in supporting our customers and recruiting top talent. The growth of Avo’s requirements is indicative of our quality and benefits to customers.”
