Opnext appoints IMM as distributor for Germany, Austria, Switzerland

Optical module and component manufacturer Opnext Inc of Eatontown, NJ, USA has expanded its network of distributors by appointing IMM Photonics GmbH of Unterschleißheim, Germany as an authorized distributor of its optical devices (red and infrared laser diodes) in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Established in 1992, IMM is a European supplier for laser, optoelectronics and fiber optics technology with its own development and production department. Its range includes single components (laser diodes, optics, optoelectronics), sub-systems (collimators and modules) and complete devices such as FIBERPOINT.

‘IMM Photonics’ extensive and loyal customer base in Europe complements Opnext’s established level of customer support capabilities, making it a natural extension of our team,” says Bernd Runge, Opnext’s VP for Europe sales.

“This opportunity enables us to broaden our extensive spectrum of products to better serve our large customer base,” says IMM Photonics’ managing director Friedrich Raith. “This agreement solidifies our position as a leading supplier and distributor of optical products in Europe,” he reckons.
