Rochester Precision Optics Announces Expansion of NY Manufacturing Facility
Specifically, along with more than $6 million in expansion and renovation work, RPO plans to buy roughly $4 million worth of new equipment.
RPO is a leading optics manufacturer providing components and full optical systems to both defense and commercial markets. Previously known as Kodak Optical Imaging Systems, it specializes in producing glass-molded aspheres using proprietary technology previously developed at Kodak.
Empire State Development has committed a $750,000 capital grant for the project, while the County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency provided a property tax abatement through its JobsPlus program.
"New York State is a leader in optics and imaging and we are committed to maintaining and expanding businesses in this industry," said Empire State Development President, CEO & Commissioner Kenneth Adams. "Companies like RPO see the value in the state's highly skilled workforce, manufacturing base and existing infrastructure."
