Distributor ProPhotonix adds Oclaro’s high-power laser products to its range

ProPhotonix Ltd of Salem, NH, USA, a designer and manufacturer of LED illumination systems and laser diode modules as well as a distributor of laser diodes, is to distribute the high-power laser line of Oclaro Inc of San Jose, CA, USA in North America and Europe.

Oclaro’s high-power lasers complement ProPhotonix’s low-power laser diodes and laser modules in established markets such as medical, defense & security, and instrumentation. The new products will also enable ProPhotonix to address a wider set of applications including materials, processing and printing. ProPhotonix is already a major distributor of Oclaro’s visible and near-infrared laser diodes.

Oclaro manufactures high-power lasers with multiple packaging options for industrial and consumer markets. ProPhotonix says that their addition will offer its customers a comprehensive solution set for their applications and enable it to grow revenues in markets that were previously unavailable with its existing products.

“This new product line gives our customers the opportunity to work with one vendor on their critical applications, which has significant cost- and time-saving implications,” reckons ProPhotonix’s chairman & CEO Mark W. Blodgett. “We are already widely known for our engineering expertise, manufacturing and support within the laser and LED community. Adding these high-powered laser products to our distribution channels extends the number of customers able to leverage those resources,” he adds.

“Strengthening our partnership with Oclaro not only extends that position, but also gives our customers the benefit of Oclaro’s extensive experience in laser manufacturing and fiber-optic coupling. Customers can now take advantage of both our strengths,” Blodgett continues.

“Given their recent expansion of technical sales teams in both the US and Europe, ProPhotonix is well positioned to increase sales of our product portfolio for industrial and consumer markets, including high-power laser devices,” says Gunnar Stolze, Oclaro’s VP, global sales Industrial & Consumer.
