QD Vision Ramps Up Production Capacity
(Nanowerk News) QD Vision, Inc., developer of nanotechnology-based optical products for displays and solid state lighting, today announced it has relocated to a new, high-volume production facility in Lexington, Massachusetts to support new products launching in 2012.
QD Vision occupies the entire building in Lexington, which houses the company's global headquarters, as well as its production and development facilities.
QD Vision is currently working with several global consumer electronics companies that are building new products that employ its Quantum Light™ optics. For displays, QD Vision's products provide greatly expanded color gamut simultaneously reducing manufacturing and operating costs while improving system energy efficiency. For solid state lighting, its products enable LED lamps to produce incandescent-like, warm, white light with high efficiency.
"Quantum dots are light emitting materials made via a precisely-controlled chemical synthesis process. The sophisticated nature of the manufacturing process, coupled with the need for a skilled educated workforce, makes Massachusetts an ideal place to locate a high-volume Quantum Dot manufacturing facility," said Jason Carlson, QD Vision CEO. "This new space in Lexington perfectly fits our needs for long term business growth and will allow us to address rapidly increasing customer demand."
