VSPOne Opens Two New Optical Manufacturing Facilities in the U.S.
Rancho Cordova, California – VSP® Optics Group announced the opening of two new VSPOne® Optical Technology Centers in the United States — Houston and Charlotte, N.C. The two new locations bring UNITY® Performance Optics products and services closer to each area’s eye care practices to provide additional lab choices and faster service for patients.
“The design of the VSPOne network and its strategic expansion have led to unprecedented growth for the network itself and the UNITY portfolio,” said Dave Delle Donne, senior vice president of business development for VSP Optics Group. “We’ve opened five new facilities in the past year and we’re hearing a lot of positive feedback.”
VSPOne Charlotte, which opened July 30, supports the east coast along with the recently opened Baltimore facility. VSPOne Houston opened in April and is supporting practices in the south as well as processing orders for VSPOne Dallas when additional production volume is needed.
At its recent open house, VSPOne Houston accounts shared the experiences they have had with the new facility.
"VSPOne Houston's turnaround time is fantastic," said Gina Huynh, OD, of Vision Care in Houston. “My office is really impressed with the level of service at the new lab.”
Similar to VSPOne Baltimore, both VSPOne Houston and VSPOne Charlotte provide the full portfolio of UNITY lenses and coatings as well as other core ophthalmic products.
The Houston and Charlotte locations expand the VSPOne Optical Technology Center network in the United States to a total of 12 locations, including: Baltimore; Columbus, Ohio; Dallas; Fort Lauderdale, Fla; Honolulu; Olympia, Wash.; Sacramento, Calif.; St. Cloud, Minn.; San Diego and Tampa Bay, Fla.
