The company’s offices in Perth and Adelaide have been closed and the operation of these two offices consolidated into its Sydney Headquarters.
To manage the effect of the closures, the customer service and fitting teams in Sydney have been expanded and processes put in place.
Brad Bairstow, Managing Director of Hoya Lens, said the expansion of HOYA Laboratory in Sydney – through significant investment in new anti-reflective coating technology and state of the art freeform surfacing systems – will allow the company to increase its production capacity and its focus on high technology products. Additionally, Hoya Lens will increase capacity and capability in strategic locations around Asia Pacific.
Continuity of supply in the future for our local customers is essential. With manufacturing capacity in Australia, Malaysia, Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand
“Continuity of supply in the future for our local customers is essential. With manufacturing capacity in Australia, Malaysia, Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand, we’ll no longer be reliant on one facility,” said Mr. Bairstow.
He said Hoya Lens expects its new equipment to be in operation by May 2012 and production will resume in the Thailand lab which will see service return to previous levels shortly thereafter.
