Notes From the CEO

19 January 2017

Enter to win a free coating run at Photonics West, 2017, Q4 sets another revenue record, and Patrick Carney joins Engineering team as Principal Engineer

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Customers of Alluxa,

I'm pleased to announce that Alluxa has achieved our third consecutive quarterly record revenue, our 15th out of the last 16 quarters. Yearly revenue for 2016 set a record as well, marking our tenth year of expansion in a row. On time delivery for 2016 came in at 99%, measured against promise date.

To accommodate our continued growth, we are working on an expansion plan to add another 20,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing and office space, which will enable an additional 12 SIRRUS™ or more high speed plasma deposition chambers and associated support equipment, bringing our total to 22 to 24 copy-exact machines. Alluxa's unique copy-exact philosophy enables all of our machines to produce all of our products, from the UV to the visible/NIR to 8-12 microns. Copy exact also allows us to reduce spares, simplify training, and reduce overall cost of production.

We will be exhibiting at Photonics West January 31-February 2nd. Please stop by our booth, # 4471 to discuss your optical filter requirements and check out some of the latest in cutting edge thin film capability. You can also register below 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.
