JML Optical Continues Growth and Expands Operational Capabilities for the Third Time in Two Years

JML Optical Industries, LLC (JML) today announced the commissioning of a state of the art high speed CNC engineered cylinder fabrication business unit. This new unit is the result of continued strong demand for its products. JML’s employee base has expanded by more than 15% over the past two years and continues to explore ways to support an ever increasing highly technical customer base.

“This operational expansion is a result of our recognition of an underserved customer base within the engineered optical cylinder marketplace,” noted JML CEO Bob Bicksler. “We believe this is a game changer for our customers and for JML. We are excited to have the opportunity to continue to grow our business and add more local jobs in the process.”

New York State Senator Rich Funke said said that “JML’s continued efforts to grow jobs and investment here highlight the company’s commitment to our local ecomony and our entire community. Its latest exciting expansion will help support even more good-paying, skills-based jobs in our region. My thanks to CEO Bob Bicksler and his entire team at JML for continuing to put Rochester on the map in the field of advanced optics.”

“Monroe County is proud to be the home of a world-class, highly-skilled workforce and exceptional educational institutions that high-tech businesses like JML Optical are looking for,” said Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo. “The commission of this new cell is just the latest example of business growth within our community.”

Within the past two years JML has acquired Harold Johnson Optical Labs and relocated its operations to Rochester, added an engineered aspheric fabrication business unit, expanded its systems manufacturing capabilities and now adds a new engineered cylinders business unit.
