Greeley, CO -(AmmoLand.com)- To further increase its global market leadership position in electro-optics, Steiner will combine its Steiner eOptics division (formerly Laser Devices Inc.), with its newly acquired Steiner STS division (formerly part of the O’Gara Group).
The new organization will retain the name Steiner eOptics, Inc. and will be located in Miami Township in Montgomery County, Ohio.
There are substantial synergies between eOptics and STS. Both companies design, develop, and produce small, man-portable, electro-optical equipment here in the United States. The customer base, engineering requirements, manufacturing processes, and supply chain are very similar. Having a single entity allows Steiner to better capture these synergies by coordinating customer visits, engineering priorities, and manufacturing resources.
Mr. Alan Page will lead the new Steiner eOptics Division as General Manager. Mr. Page led the former O’Gara companies, STS Inc. and Diffraction Ltd., for the last 10 years and has 20 years of experience in the electro-optic industry.
“STS and Diffraction have focused on serving an elite, international Special Forces community for 20 years,” said Mr. Page. “We design and produce equipment that helps these operators ensure mission success. By combining the two organizations we will further cement our position as the technological leader in the electro-optics market. Under single leadership we will be able to spread technology created for these elite operators into the broader market served by Steiner.”
