HOYA Corporation (HOYA) announced in August the completion of the acquisition of Performance Optics, LLC (Performance Optics), including its subsidiaries VISION EASE and Daemyung Optical. Performance Optics is a global ophthalmic lens manufacturer specializing in polycarbonate, photochromic, polarized and high index eyeglass lenses. The acquisition complements the HOYA Life Care portfolio, further expanding both HOYA's geographic reach and product offering for its HOYA Vision Care division.
"In everything we do, we focus on the needs and challenges of Eyecare and Industry Professionals. We are a true partner, helping them to distinguish themselves from the competition by bringing value to their businesses, instead of acting as their competitor" said Girts Cimermans, CEO of HOYA Vision Care. "Performance Optics provides HOYA with additional capabilities and offerings in polycarbonate, photochromic and polarized lens technologies, and expands our global footprint in high index lens casting. This strengthens our position as a global technology leader and offers more Eyecare and Industry Professionals the sales and marketing support they want and need."
