New York Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul joined IDEX Chairman and CEO Andy Silvernail and other leaders for the official opening of the IDEX Health & Science Center of Excellence in Rochester, NY, on Monday, November 12.
The new 100,000-square-foot facility brings together IDEX Life Science Optics, Scientific Fluidics and Optical Technologies businesses, creating a highly differentiated platform to better serve the life science, semiconductor and defense markets.
The new Center of Excellence includes IDEX Health & Science’s Semrock and Melles Griot Rochester – which specializes in optical filters, lenses, shutters, and optical assemblies – as well as the manufacturing operations of its Melles Griot Carlsbad, CA business – which specializes in laser light sources and integrated optical systems.
Melles Griot has already moved into the facility. Semrock is scheduled to move in next year.
