Excelitas Technologies® Corp. recently announced that it is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of its founding. Since being established as an independent company spun out of Perkin Elmer in December 2010, Excelitas reports that it has enjoyed greater than three-fold growth in both revenue and headcount.

Growth reportedly occurred organically and through an acquisition strategy to add scale and scope, built on Excelitas’ core photonics technology platforms. Excelitas’ acquisitions (Carsan Engineering, Kaiser Systems, Qioptiq, Lumen Dynamics, Research Electro Optics (REO), Axsun Technologies, and Solidtron) have helped create a source of end-to-end photonic solutions for commercial OEMs, defense primes, and government customers around the world. 

Excelitas’ photonics portfolio now consists of an expanding array of lasers and illumination, optics and transmission, sensors and detection, and electronics and power technologies. The company has also grown its global footprint, now with more than 7,000 employees in 11 countries across North America, Europe, and Asia; 18 state-of-the art photonics manufacturing centers; and 10 administrative/support offices.

“Over the 10 years that we’ve assembled our photonic technologies portfolio, Excelitas has enabled the growth of many of the world’s most innovative companies,” said David Nislick, Ph.D., CEO. “By listening to customer needs and delivering bespoke, high-performance and reliable photonics solutions, our dedicated employees add value every day and we owe our success to them. Even in the uncharted waters of a global pandemic, we are in full operation and continue to deliver critically important products to essential industries. I could not be prouder of the dedication, empathy and vigilance demonstrated by our Excelitas team members to keep our colleagues safe.”
