Qioptiq parent to close Fairport plant

Rochester Business Journal
April 30, 2014

The parent company of Fairport-based Qioptiq Inc. said Wednesday it would close the local plant.

Patrick Pecorelli, director of corporate marketing and communication for Waltham, Mass.-based Excelitas Technology Corp., confirmed the shutdown, but said a closure date has not yet determined and no further details are available at this time.

Products designed and manufactured at the local site will continue to be provided to customers from other Excelitas Technologies’ facilities, he said.

Qioptiq ranked 13th on the most recent Rochester Business Journal list of Optics and Imaging firms with 64 local workers. The company specializes in the design and manufacture of high performance photonic products.

Excelitas Technologies acquired the privately-held Qioptiq last year. At the time of the deal, Qioptiq had facilities throughout Europe, Asia and the United States, employing over 1,900 people.
