Notes From the CEO

11 February 2016

Alluxa finishes expansion, posts 12th consecutive record quarter, and win a free coating run at Photonics West.

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Customers of Alluxa,

The fourth quarter is complete, and I’m pleased to announce that Alluxa has achieved our 12th consecutive quarterly record revenue. On time delivery came in with a mark of 99%.

In Q4 we also finished our latest factory expansion, which added approximately 50% to our capacity through the addition of multiple new deposition chambers and accompanying processing equipment, all in 5000 square feet of new office and manufacturing space. More details can be found in the press release here. No sooner than we completed this expansion, then we are embarking on a new one, the plans of which are being created, with an announcement likely in the spring.

Keep an eye on our web site for the addition of over one hundred new filters targeting life sciences, along with related content on relevant dyes and light sources. Most of the filters will be from our ULTRA series, which provide the industry’s best optical performance as measured by slope, center wavelength tolerance, transmission, and blocking. Our Applications Engineering expert and biologist, Alannah Johansen, is spearheading this effort.

And please join us at Photonics West at our booth #5270. You can register for our wine and beer reception on Tuesday night where qualifying individuals, which is pretty much everyone, can enter our contest to win a free coating run. And ask us about our "Run with Peter" event, where none other than our eVP of BD, Mr. Peter Egerton, will be leading us on a scenic fun run from the Golden Gate Bridge back to the convention center.

See you all at Photonics West!

Mike
