Effective April 3rd, 2006 the current distribution agreement will end. Coherent's current HeNe customers will be redirected to Melles Griot for their HeNe solutions.

"We've been happy to private label these products, however, we've decided to focus on non-HeNe products such as our direct diode, diode-pumped solid-state and Optically Pumped Semiconductor (OPS) products. These products, offering wavelengths from the UV, visible to near-IR continue to offer compelling solutions for our customers," said Paul Sechrist, vice president, Components Business Management for Coherent.

Melles Griot will honor current contracts and support for new and existing HeNe lasers going forward. Last HeNe shipments from Coherent are anticipated to be March 31st, 2006.
