Janos Technology moves to expanded 40,000 square foot facility

KEENE, N.H., June 13 /PRNewswire/ — Janos Technology, Inc., a global supplier of precision infrared optical components, lenses, assemblies and custom designed solutions for commercial OEM, aerospace/military and astronomy/R&D markets, announces their recent move from Townshend, Vermont to a state-of-the-art facility in Keene, New Hampshire. The new address is:

Janos Technology
55 Black Brook Road
Keene, NH 03431
Phone: 603-757-0070
Fax: 603-757-0069

The new 40,000 square foot facility (with the capacity to expand an additional 17,000 square feet) was designed utilizing the latest lean and agile (aka flexible) manufacturing principles with continuous improvement concepts. Lens systems will be assembled in a class 1000 clean room environment with hoods capable of sustaining a class 100, local conditions. The enhanced capabilities of the new anti-reflection coating clean room, and significant additions in coating equipment increases both the capacity and the quality of the conventional and diamond-like coatings currently produced at Janos Technology. This clean room also enables future expansion into another market segment with the production of high-powered laser optics.

According to Brett Rosner, President of Janos Technology, “The open manufacturing layout is consistent with a visual factory philosophy and reinforces a one-team atmosphere rather than a departmentalized structure. The incorporation of agile features (such as overhead electrical, water, air, data links, etc.) will enable us to easily, and cost effectively, rearrange and restructure our production line to accommodate custom manufacturing needs with minimal interruption to production. This ability to streamline and optimize processes will result in reductions in lead time and cost — both important factors in remaining competitive in this global economy. Many of the concepts utilized, and much of the detailed layout of the plant, were the result of efforts contributed to us by our aerospace customers. During this process, they opened their doors to us and provided whatever support we needed. We surely owe them a debt of gratitude and thank them for all that they have done for us.”

The newly designed plant will house the company’s 80 employees with an additional 15 positions available. To view job postings, please visit: http://www.janostech.com/index.php?t=company/employment&
