Special Optics, a Navitar company, designs, develops and manufactures precision optical components
from one facility located in Wharton, New Jersey. Since our beginning in
1965 we have developed and refined a wide range of optical fabrication
and opto-mechanical assembly capabilities. As a result, we have evolved
into a unique company, offering standard catalog optics along with custom
designs, while continuing to focus on responding to customer needs quickly.
In this light, our policy is to provide 24-hour turnaround on all quotations.

At Special Optics we emphasize
"Special". By this, we mean that our products are high-quality, diffraction-limited
optical systems. Since we design, manufacture and assemble the optical systems
ourselves, we provide tight coordination between design and manufacturing tolerances
and requirements, thereby assuring that the final system performance matches
the initial design goals. In addition to our extensive catalog product lines,
we work with customers to develop new systems to meet their specific needs.
If you have a challenging design and want to see it quickly turned into a successful
prototype or product, contact Special Optics.
