Advanced Thin Films, Inc. Wins Colorado Photonics Company of the Year
Boulder, Colorado, October 25, 2011- The Colorado Photonics Industry Association (CPIA) has named Advanced Thin Films, Inc. (ATFilms) as the 2011 Colorado Photonics Company of the Year. The award will be presented to Ramin Lalezari, ATFilms President at the CPIA Annual Meeting on Tuesday, October 25, 2011. This meeting will be held on the University of Colorado campus in Boulder (UMC 235) from 3-6 p.m. and is open to the public.
The CPIA bestows the Photonics Company of the Year award to the company or institution that it feels has contributed the most to the Colorado photonics industry over the preceding year. This 2011 winner, ATFilms, is a precision optics and thin film coating company, founded here in Colorado in 2002. ATFilms was selected from more than 200 companies in the aerospace, renewable energy, defense, life sciences, telecommunications, and electronics industries, which are involved in photonics, or light-based, technologies.
“Since its inception, ATFilms has established its reputation as a supplier of exceptional optical coatings and superpolished components,” notes Brian Knollenberg, CPIA board member. “ATFilms stands as an example of what can be accomplished by talented and committed employees even without substantial capital backing. Over the past nine years ATFilms has grown substantially from a local boot-strap startup co-located with the Colorado Advanced Photonics Technology Center (CAPT) eventually becoming a valued asset of a larger publicly traded corporation IDEX Corp. ATFilms’ continued growth and capital reinvestment in local operations has been an important factor in strengthening our local photonics industry.”
“We are honored to have been chosen as the Colorado Photonics Company of the Year,” remarks Ramin Lalezari. “It has been a successful year for us by all accounts, beginning with the purchase by IDEX and ending with this recognition. Being in the highly competitive optics hub of Boulder, we are continually pushing the envelope to grow our design and manufacturing capabilities. We are fortunate to have talented and dedicated employees that continually go above and beyond for continued growth and success.”
The Colorado Photonics Industry Association is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to encouraging cooperation, collaboration, and partnering among the 250 industrial, academic, and governmental organizations in Colorado involved in optics and photonics technologies. CPIA’s mission is to promote the Colorado photonics industry and to enhance the profitability of its members. Founded in 1997, CPIA now includes over 80 members. In addition to industrial organizations ranging from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, the photonics community in Colorado includes four national laboratories and five academic institutions. The last three Nobel Prize winners for physics in Colorado have won for photonics related research. For more information, please visit www.coloradophotonics.org
