in accordance with its final design and manufacturing specifications. Dedicated New Product Introduction: The company provides new product introduction capabilities designed to ensure that its customers’ products get to market as quickly as possible. The company’s new product introduction sites are outfitted with production equipment that mirrors the equipment used in its manufacturing facilities, ensuring a transition to a production environment once the product is qualified. Qualifications: Many of the products that the company produces for its customers require extensive environmental and reliability qualification involving, in some cases, a three to six months or longer duration prior to volume production. The qualification phase might include a customer’s certification of a production line or process and one or a series of qualification tests for mechanical integrity and environmental endurance as specified by an organization, such as Telcordia for telecommunication equipment. Continuous Improvement and Optimization Design and process improvements might include reducing the number of parts, simplifying the assembly process, eliminating non-value add operations, using standard materials and optimizing manufacturing lines. Supply Chain and Inventory Management The company’s procurement and materials management services include planning, purchasing, expediting, warehousing and financing materials from various suppliers. It has created a proprietary set of automated manufacturing resource planning tools to manage its inventory. Quality Control The company’s manufacturing execution system is directly integrated with its test system and enterprise resource planning database allowing it to respond to any process deviations in real time. It works with customers to develop product-specific test strategies. The company also provides various test management services, including material and process testing and reliability testing. In addition to providing yield, manufacturing data tracking and other information, the company’s data tracking system also performs process route checking to ensure that the products follow correct process steps, and the test results meet all specified criteria. Its test capabilities include traditional PCBA testing, mechanical testing and optical testing, which includes parametric testing, such as insertion loss, return loss and extinction ratio, and functional testing (bit error ratio). Customized Glass and Crystal Optics Fabrication The company designs and fabricates its own customized glass and crystal optics, which are core components of the higher level assemblies that it manufactures for its customers. Its fabrication facilities are located in Fuzhou, China and Mountain Lakes, New Jersey. Fiber Optic Ferrules and Alignment Sleeves; Fiber Optic Substrates; Precision Glass Tubing, Precision Capillaries and Rods: These single bore and multi-bore products, in various shapes and dimensions, are used principally in optical communications, medical and industrial applications. Laser Optics: Includes crystals (such as YVO4, Nd: YVO4, Cr: YAG, and BBO), optics, high reflectivity mirrors, lenses, prisms and windows used in laser applications. Medical Optics: Includes mirrors, lenses, filters, waveplates, windows, and prisms incorporated into various medical equipment products. Storage Optics: Includes mirrors, polarizing beam splitters or PBS, and waveplates incorporated into optical storage products. Surveying Optics: Includes penta prisms, corner cubes, and T-Windows incorporated into precision surveying products. Telecom Optics: Includes lenses (such as spherical, a-spherical, C-lens, and cylindrical), waveplates, mirrors, prisms, filters and YVO4 crystals used for telecommunications applications. Telecommunication Subassemblies: Includes fiber pigtails (both single and dual), assemblies and collimators used in many fiber optic components, such as isolators, circulators, optical switches and three-port filters. Intellectual Property The company has a relatively small number of solely-owned and jointly-held the People’s Republic of China patents in
