JUPITER, FL — Jenoptik Optical Systems announced the expansion of its manufacturing operations in Florida.

Jenoptik opened a new ISO 14644 Class 5 clean room with state-of-the-art filtration technology for high-precision optical assemblies to support applications with demanding cleanliness requirements like semiconductor and space flight instrumentation. Additionally, Jenoptik has extended site capabilities by investing in a new thermal vacuum chamber in the clean room. The Class 5 clean room complements the pre-existing ISO 14644 Class 7 clean room and triples the amount of clean room space in Florida.

Jenoptik’s continued expansion in Florida is the direct result of customer volume requirements for the company’s products. This new facility complements the clean room capacity in Huntsville, AL. The Huntsville facility is purpose-built to meet the rigorous requirements of leading-edge semiconductor-related manufacturing activities.

Jay Kumler, president of Jenoptik Optical Systems in North America, commented, "We are investing in differentiating technologies, advanced equipment and employees, and we are committed to meeting our customers’ expectations for higher levels of cleanliness and contamination control.”

Equipment manufacturers around the globe use Jenoptik’s products to build semiconductor devices, telecommunications equipment, digital projection, mobile devices, augmented reality, industrial automation and connected vehicles.
