Hoya Partners with Alberta’s Nova Optical Labs
Hoya Vision Care Canada announces a strategic partnership with Nova Optical Labs in Red Deer, Calgary and Lethbridge Alberta to help strengthen the local presence as the only full-service laboratory in the province of Alberta.
Nova Optical Labs, an independent Canadian manufacturer, was established in 1992. They expanded
to Calgary in 2005, and then to Lethbridge in 2011.
Ahmos Henry, President of Hoya Vision Care Canada stated: “This partnership will help to set an unprecedented local presence in Alberta and provide Nova Optical Labs with multi-national brand support including customer care, manufacturing, sales and marketing.” This will add numerous capabilities to the existing manufacturing operations making Nova Optical labs one of the strongest lens suppliers in Canada. This will also provide the competitive edge in western Canada for both dress wear and protective safety eye wear.
In support of this partnership, Nova Optical Labs will be announcing a national campaign for a 24-hour service commitment on Seiko progressive lenses which includes anti-reflective coating.
Hoya Vision Care Canada will also extend their national marketing campaign to Nova Optical Lab customers providing even greater incentives for choosing Nova.
This agreement will be closing in June 2018 at which time Hoya will offer the support needed to expand and offer Nova’s Albertan made lenses to the entire Canadian market.
