ABOUT US

history

Interoptik is a Romanian private company, specialized in developing, producing and distributing high quality lenses. Started as a family business, Interoptik became in the meantime one of the market leaders in Romania.

Founded in 1992 by Ioan Lădariu, Interoptik’s story started “from scratch“, but with a lot of enthusiasm. A team of kind people and with a lot of experience in producing ophthalmic lenses, lays the foundation of a new company, in a period with many challenges. The activity was initially exclusively on the production of mineral lenses. Step by step, the portfolio has diversified, reaching today thousands of different power combinations, materials and coatings.

OUR PHiLOSOPHY

Here at Interoptik we look with clarity into the future, offering ophthalmic lenses at the highest quality standard available on the market. We strongly believe that only through competence, involvement and seriousness we can produce high quality products.

Our team philosophy is based on trust, commitment and honesty. These, together with industrial expertise and optics experience have made it possible to built strong and lasting relationships with our clients, based on fairness and respect.

We aim to be the perfect partner, offering the ideal combination between high quality ophthalmic lenses, quality frames and glazzing services.

OUT OF PASSION

We believe we are different from many other companies, because we do everything with passion. We still collaborate today with our first client from 1992, our personnel maintaining rate is over 90%, and the contracts with the brands we represent are only on long term.

We respect optics and we do everything how it should be done. And these are not just words, for more than 28 years this is the path to success, the path for prosperity and performance.

We strongly believe in the lenses we produce and we continuously invest in their development. We put soul in every lens we produce and this can be seen.

PARTNERSHIPS

Our activity was marked from the beginning by the close partnership with the German Concern Rodenstock, whose exclusive representative we are in Romania, Hungary and the Republic of Moldova.

Also, we are exclusive representative in Romania of the frames manufacturers Wagner Kuhner Germany, Flair Germany, Aoyama Germany and Opal France.

Technically, we have strong partnerships with Optotech Germany for surface processing technology, AR Robotics Belgium for testing, SCL Switzerland for hard coating and Leybold Germany for coatings.

LabORATORY

Located in Timişoara, a traditional lenses production city, Interoptik Laboratory covers an area of 2,000 square meters and is equipped with advanced systems of production and quality control. It was designed and built from scratch for the production of ophthalmic lenses.
 

Over 100 specialists work in the Interoptik Laboratory, the activity taking place in 3 shifts. 3000 lenses are shipped daily from our warehouse which hosts 500,000 lenses, to our customers in 8 countries.

They give us the inspiration and motivation to raise the standard continuously. Through constant improvement and investment in the latest technology, we produce lenses to the highest standard.

TECHNOLOGY

The sustained development of the last 28 years has been the natural result of massive and continuous investments in the latest processing technology. Because this is the only way we can offer our customers high end products and high standard services.

Since the beginning we have been collaborating with world leading companies in the technology field and lens production equipment. At the moment, surface processing is completely automated, during all stages: from the first wrapping operation, to locking, milling, polishing, engraving, to unlocking and washing.

We also use industrial robots for intermediate control, final control, marking, packing and labeling of the lenses.

PROCESS

Experience: every day we do our best to make the next lens we produce better than the previous one. We learn from experience because we are a dynamic company that develops step by step.

Operational procedures are refined in order to reduce to a minimum the possibility of errors. All operations that are performed on each lens are recorded and documented for perfect traceability.

The materials used in production are purchased from Rodenstock and the testing of the production process is done regularly in the testing laboratories in Germany.

Over 40% of the electricity we use is green, from the 300 photovoltaic panels installed on the building.
Efficient: The modern building is energetic optimized, the heat resulted from the technological process is recovered by high end pumps for reduced environmental impact.
Responsible: efficient LED lightning, the use of only recycled packing materials as well as recycling over 90% of the industrial waste.
