Peak Nano Optics, an emerging leader in nano-optics, develops cutting edge thin-film and plastic based optics used in military, satellite, and automotive applications. As they grew beyond the capacity of their current facility in Valley View, they sought the expertise of HSB to fit-out a 48,000 sf new Optics Foundry in Macedonia Ohio. The space would provide the client with the unique environment necessary for optics production and included a 10,000 sf cleanroom. As a former steel processing plant, the building was also ideal due to its thick vibration free floors needed for precision optics carving. The new optics foundry facility would significantly increase the production capacity and allow them to ramp up employment from 54 employees to a goal of 200.
The project relied heavily on the expertise of the HSB engineering team with cleanroom design, 4,000-amp electrical service upgrade, power, and infrastructure distribution for this dynamic company. HSB works with processed based clients to help develop smart systems to meet their needs and budget. The project was completed in 2019 and HSB has continued to develop further renovations as their needs evolve.
