Our in-house tooling department gives us a significant edge in efficiency, allowing us to instantly respond to changes in production requirements.

The optics industry is rapidly evolving, demanding quicker lead times and tighter tolerances. LaCroix is staying competitive as we shorten our lead times to 4-6 weeks, or even faster when necessary. A well organized workflow is essential to this end, which is why we use manufacturing enterprise software to track each part as it moves through our facility.

We know your reputation is on the line. That’s why we see our relationship as an extension of your company and uphold that trust with reliable quality and delivery. The elements of our optics manufacturing process work together toward one end: your complete satisfaction.
