Göttingen, Germany--The companies of the LINOS Group will change their name to Qioptiq as of July 1, 2010. LINOS GmbH (formerly LINOS AG) will then be called Qioptiq Holding GmbH, while the operating company LINOS Photonics GmbH & Co. KG will operate under the name of Qioptiq Photonics GmbH & Co. KG from that date. As such, LINOS, a global manufacturer of complex optical systems, is completing its integration in the Qioptiq Group, which started with the take-over in 2006. The companies have already been jointly marketing their products since 2007. The brand appearance of Qioptiq was updated at the start of this year and standardized for all locations of the Group and all 2,300 employees. In July 2010, the new website will also go online at www.qioptiq.com."With its rebranding, our group of companies is strengthening its presence compared to its international competitors and is thereby promoting joint sales activities," said Volker Brockmeyer, LINOS Managing Director, and as Executive Vice President head of the Photonic Systems Division of the Qioptiq Group: "From the clear brand appearance, we hope that the comprehensive technical know-how and range of services from Qioptiq will become even more visible for our customers." The change of name will not result in any other changes for LINOS customers and business partners; all contacts will remain the same. There will also be no changes for employees at the Göttingen, Feldkirchen (Munich) and Regen sites. The company also noted in its press release that Optatec 2010 was very positive for Qioptiq. More than 500 exhibitors from 31 countries presented their products last week in Frankfurt at the international specialist event for optical technologies, components, systems and production. In its release the company said Optatec had raised its confidence in a positive business performance. Interest was high in the numerous new products introduced that attracted great interest, including the world's smallest head-up display, focusing lenses based on liquids or polymers, optically contacted polarising beam splitter cubes, and hyperchromats with excellent monochromatic mapping performance.
