Tuesday, June 2 2015 | 00 h 00 min | Press Release
Centennial Optical Limited and Rx Centre Optical Laboratory announced the conclusion of an agreement for Centennial to purchase and continue Rx Centre operation as an independent wholesale laboratory. This purchase agreement reinforces Centennial’s commitment to supporting a strong network of independent laboratories in Canada, in order to provide quality products and service to local eye care professionals.
Rx Centre provides a full range of products from major lens manufacturers, including Nikon, ZEISS, Shamir, Kodak, SOLA and Younger lens brands. The lab will continue to operate as a full-service, wholesale laboratory with no changes planned for the current management, technical and customer service. Providing the technology, products and service to best meet its customers’ needs will always be Rx Centre’s first priority and the lab will continue to be free to supply a full range of products from different manufacturers without bias.
Centennial Optical is an independent, Canadian-owned distributor of ophthalmic frames, lenses, contact lenses, sunglasses, optical coatings, lab supplies and accessories. This acquisition represents a step forward in building a larger, independent network of wholesale suppliers that Canadian eye care professionals can depend on.
