Excelitas Technologies Celebrates Tenth Anniversary

Excelitas Technologies® Corp., Waltham, Massachusetts, a provider of innovative, customized photonic solutions, is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of its founding, as well as a decade of innovation. Since being established as an independent company spun out of Perkin Elmer in December 2010, Excelitas Technologies has enjoyed greater than three-fold growth in revenue and headcount.

Growth occurred both organically and through an aggressive and selective acquisition strategy to add scale and scope, built upon Excelitas’ core photonics technology platforms and best-in-class operational excellence. Excelitas’ acquisitions – Carsan Engineering, Kaiser Systems, Qioptiq, Lumen Dynamics, Research Electro Optics (REO), Axsun Technologies and most recently Solidtron – have helped create a unique single source of innovative, end-to-end photonic solutions for commercial OEMs, defense primes and government customers around the world. Its photonics portfolio now consists of an expanding array of lasers and illumination, optics and transmission, sensors and detection, and electronics and power technologies.

Excelitas’ end-to-end photonics solutions enable leading-edge product and technology development for a growing list of Fortune 500 companies and a wide array of customers across the aerospace, medical, scientific, industrial manufacturing, consumer products, safety and security, semiconductor, automotive and defense markets. The company has 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.
