From our start in 1981 as Syntec Technologies, we have merged concurrent engineering practices with cost-effective manufacturing, injection molding techniques and integrated quality assurance. The result was a solid reputation for superior results on budget and on schedule, with none of the “over-the-wall” transfer of information that puts so many projects at risk. In the late 1990s, we added leading edge expertise in the rapidly expanding applications of polymer optics. We focused our services on custom plastic optics for medical, defense and biometrics applications, spurring innovation, especially in single point diamond turning, and reinventing plastic optics applications and tolerances. Our emphasis on optics as key to total solutions evolved to the point that in 2006, we formally changed our name to Syntec Optics. Today Syntec Optics is the largest independent custom manufacturer of polymer optics in the United States, serving a worldwide customer base located in Rochester NY.
