Hi all, It’s been about a month since my last e-mail but what a month it’s been!

Obviously I am delighted to announce the news that Optimec Ltd now has new owners. Xitek are a very experienced player in the electronics market and were keen to acquire a foothold in the Optics industry. With extensive R&D and electronic design experience Xitek can offer immediate improvements and development possibilities to the Optimec product range. They will also add strength to the R&D function to ensure that viable new product developments are brought to market quickly and effectively. Optimec customers are assured of continued supply of all the products they are used to as well as some exciting new product developments for the future.

In acquiring Optimec Xitek have also gained a significant manufacturing function as well as a skilled team of committed individuals. It really is the dream deal!

For me personally it also signifies a new and interesting period. The Directors of Xitek have asked me to assist with the marketing function at Optimec as well as on many new opportunities that are emerging. I of course am very happy to be part of this process.

Whilst I am on the subject of opportunities please don’t miss out on the EFCLIN Congress & Exhibition in Riga, Latvia from 13th-15th May. It’s quite simply the best networking, meeting, educational & commercial shopping event in the calendar….and it’s two weeks away! Visit and click on the “congress” link.

Too much to say I am afraid, I’ll have to leave the rest until next issue.

New Ownership at Optimec

The Directors & shareholders of Optimec are delighted to report that following recent negotiations the company has been sold to the electronics design & manufacturing company Xitek Ltd of the West Midlands in the UK. “We have been working with the team at Xitek for a number of years and the synergies between our two companies had become obvious”, said Optimecs Managing Director Steve Wheeler this week. “With a strong electronic design and R&D background and an innovative and fresh approach to manufacturing I couldn’t think of a more suitable match than that offered by Xitek”. “The sum, is most definitely greater than the parts”, he continued.
