Liebmann Optical Company
In 1977, Liebmann Optical Company was founded in Easthampton, MA by Roland Liebmann.
Roland, a master optician formally trained in Germany, had most recently managed the optical shop at Kollmorgen Electro-optical. With his entrepreneurial spirit and optical manufacturing experience, he founded his own business in Easthampton.
The company thrived specializing in small diameter, tight tolerance lens elements demanded by the endoscopy and medical device markets in the Northeast. A new generation of opticians was trained with a focus on precision.
In 1999, Liebmann Optical Company was purchased by JENOPTIK (Jena, Germany).
In 2009, Liebmann merged with sister company, Coastal Optical Systems, Inc. (Jupiter, FL) to form JENOPTIK Optical Systems, Inc.
