Kopp’s custom engineered borosilicate lenses are found in products used throughout the world in many different industries. They include aerospace, airports and anywhere that a harsh environment, such as heat, chemicals or abrasion, demands a precision crafted, durable glass lens.
Becoming ISO certified was the next logical step to take in Kopp’s 85 year history in order to remain the industry leader in technical glass manufacturing. “Because the business environment is changing, potential customers around the world are more selective than ever as far as qualifying and selecting the types of companies that they choose to partner with. They want to conduct business with a stable, quality oriented company that focuses on continuous improvement and innovative design and development.”- Darin Bernardi, Kopp’s Sales Manager.
