oha communication congratulates Edmund Optics on its 70th birthday
Stuttgart/Karlsruhe (Germany), March 12, 2012 – oha communication has become a tour escort through time. In celebration of the 70th company anniversary, an entertaining online-special on Edmund Optics’ website tells how the hobby of an amateur photographer developed to a world-leading company in the photonics industry.
Norman W. Edmund contracted his passion for lenses at an early age. In 1942, he began to salvage surplus optical components from inventories. His mail-order business developed rapidly to a favored source of purchase for research institutes, universities and businesses.
Today, Edmund Optics (EO) is a leading manufacturer of precision optics and assemblies in the fields of photonics and imaging and the world’s largest supplier of off-the-shelf optical components. The family-held company from Barrington, New Jersey (USA) is globally active. A sales office in Karlsruhe has been serving since 2000 as a hub for further expansion in European market.
oha communication is now supporting in this process. The first joint project was to prepare EO’s company story for the German website. Its anecdotes not only reflect the personable spirit of the founder, Norman Edmund, who unfortunately passed away on January 17, 2012. Since 1975, it is his son Robert, who is placing the milestones internationally for EO’s journey into the future.
