About Us

High Quality Optical Solutions

Finding A Permanent Solution Is Our Ultimate Goal!

Since 1982, Our Team Has Succeeded In Understanding The Needs Of The Industry And Creating Reliable Products To Serve Them All.

ULO Optics was founded as V&S Scientific by David Greening in 1982. In 2000 it was sold to Umicore and operated as Umicore Laser Optics.  ULO Optics in its current structure is the result of a management buyout in 2006. Since its inception our manufacturing facility has remained in Hertfordshire, north of London, UK, where a core team of experienced engineers and technicians design, manufacture, and test ULO Optics’ products.

ULO Optics has four decades of experience in designing and fabricating beam delivery solutions. Our engineers have designed optics that today are used as standards in the industry and have supported OEM customers in designing custom optics for CO2 and thermal imaging applications. CO2 scanning lenses developed by ULO Optics are still the widely used standard throughout the industry.
