GL Optic Light Measurement Spins off as an Independent Entity

GL Optic based in Weilheim/Teck, Germany has launched operations as a separate business unit. Following a spin-off from parent company Just Normlicht, the brand name has now become an independent entity. The move is the result of a sharp increase in demand for all types of light measurement instruments and measurement systems, as well as the positive response to the GL Optic brand.

New top executives Michael Gall and Mikolaj Przybyla made the announcement at the beginning of the 2015. The third partner in the team, Jan Lalek, has assumed responsibility for research and development. GL Optic R&D, the company’s production subsidiary in Poland, will also operate as a separate entity. GL Optic products are already being used virtually around the globe. Yet the new company is optimistic about the prospects of substantially increasing its market share in Germany and Europe, while the outlook in North America and Canada also looks promising.

The GL Optic product portfolio includes light measurement instruments, integrating spheres, software and an array of accessories. The measurement instruments range from pocket-size hand-held devices to laboratory-grade spectrometers designed for maximum precision and versatility, while the color-tunable LED light source can be used for a wide range of calibration and color measurement tasks. The GL Optic brand was created in 2009 for the specific purpose of developing low-cost, user-friendly instruments for measuring LEDs with maximum precision. GL Optic systems are now used around the world in demanding measurement applications.
