Tokai Optical launches lens production in Belgium

Tokai Optecs, the European sales arm of the Japanese spectacle-lens maker Tokai Optical Co., Ltd, has launched production at a new facility in Flanders that includes a production line for customized spectacle lenses.

The 7.5 million euro facility is located at Tienen and covers 1,700 m². The annual production capacity of the customized-lens line is 200,000 units, and the company forecasts annual sales of 12 million euro. The facility has already begun full commercial operations.

Tokai Optecs N.V. was founded in 1995 through capital participation by Tokai Optical in a Belgium-based trading company that sold eyeglasses, lenses and related products throughout Europe. The move was designed to strengthen and extend Tokai Optical’s spectacle-lens marketing infrastructure in Europe.

With the ultimate goal of building a position as a global company, Tokai Optical intends to boost Tokai Optecs’ sales in Europe and actively extend its overseas business to Asia and America.
