Plastic Plus Opens New State-Of-The-Art Optical Lab

Plastic Plus is pleased to announced the opening of their new state-of-the-art optical lab manufacturing facility in Toronto. The new 30,000-square-foot optical lab offers eyecare providers world-leading lens technology, which is 100 per cent manufactured in Canada.

Plastic Plus has been serving the optical industry for more than 40 years. The new facility doubles the lens manufacturing and coating capacity and increases both accuracy and delivery time. The company is a leader in the manufacturing of free form single vision lenses, progressives and specialty lenses, and is noted for its commitment to independent eyecare providers.

“We are incredibly excited to debut this new facility to the industry. More than three years of planning and construction went into creating what is now one of the top optical labs in the world,” said Plastic Plus President Paul Faibish. “Every area of production has been enhanced to improve quality and service. With our advanced conveyor systems the process is now completely automated from lens tapping to mapping”,

Plastic Plus has incorporated the latest lens manufacturing machinery from Satisloh, MEI, A&R, Schneider and OptoTech. Plastic Plus is committed to independent eyecare providers offering products from the highest level of lens technology, including Seiko, Rodenstock, Shaw Lens and IOT.

“We strive to provide the best lens technology available. We manufacture in Canada. We do not send our work offshore and we do not operate retail in direct competition with our Canadian clients,” said Faibish. “This lab is not just for us, but for our clients who believe, like we do, that independent optical is important and deserves the best products and service”.

The first official lab tour will be held during the Ontario Opticians Association Inside Optics conference on Sunday, April 29, with additional tours happening soon through the company’s industry partners.

“We look forward to welcoming the optical industry to our new lab and to offer eyecare providers one the best optical manufacturing experiences in the world,” said Faibish.
