Fifteen years ago, Nikon and Essilor partnered to bring new high-end products to the market and to speed up Nikon’s expansion into Japan and around the world.
Their joint venture has produced a series of innovations, including high-index lenses (1.74), SeeCoat Blue coating, which filters blue light, the SeeMAX lens, customized single vision lenses and digital tinting.
In 2009, the partners founded the Nikon-Essilor International Joint Research Center, which focusses on long-term innovation in fields like opto-electronics, precision optics and advanced materials.
Over 1,000 staff work for Nikon-Essilor, which hopes to increase its presence in the newer markets such as the Middle East, Russia and Turkey.
