About Avo

Avo is the photonics industry’s trusted source for exclusive, private label photonics design, development, and manufacturing. We produce confidential, client-owned optoelectronic solutions and products for medical, military, industrial, aerospace and communications application.

Since 2003, we’ve earned the trust and confidence of these key markets for three important reasons:

  • Optical, mechanical, thermal and electrical engineering are in our DNA. We were founded and are still guided by laser physicists and engineers who blend these critical, photonics-based disciplines into a single source for the conceptualizing, design, testing and producing of precision, rugged, optoelectronic components and assemblies. 
  • When we say confidential and client-owned, we really mean it. We work with market leaders that demand strict confidentiality and advanced technology that address their rapidly evolving photonics needs. When clients engage us, we become an extension of their organization. The knowledge and any patent-eligible intellectual assets we create become the sole property of our clients. 
  • Our AvoLight™ Services and our processes enable us to work with companies at nearly any stage of their idea lifecycle. We become vested partners in their projects, delivering on-time and on-budget solutions regardless of their complexity, size or shape.  

Avo is a U.S.-based company, and our Philadelphia, Pennsylvania office houses our corporate headquarters, engineering, testing and a 20,000 square-foot manufacturing facility that features a 16,000 square-foot clean room. Design verification and prototyping are also conducted out of our suburban Toronto, Ontario, office.
