Meyer Optik Görlitz will rise again from the ashes

Meyer Optik Görlitz will rise again from the ashes

[09:06 fri,14.December 2018   by ]    

After insolvency of Net SE it was not clear whether it would continue with the traditional brand Meyer Optik Görlitz, in which Net SE held the rights - now it is clear that Meyer Optik Görlitz Optiken will continue to exist in the future.

OPC Optics, a specialist for the production of aspherical and spherical glass lenses based in Bad Kreuznach, Germany, has acquired the trademark rights for Meyer Optik Görlitz and all associated products such as Trioplan and Primolplan lenses and wants to optimize production and restart it as quickly as possible. However, the range is being streamlined as it is currently very large for a niche manufacturer and comprises approx. 12 lens series. Whether the previously only announced APO-Plasmat 105 or Nocturnus DSLR lenses will ever be produced is currently unclear.

Contrary to Net SE OPC Optics does not want to set however on the financing of new optics by Crowdfunding campaigns, but it completely traditionally on the market to bring. Unfortunately, the previous supporters who had pre-financed new optics via Kickstarter, but who were never delivered due to the insolvency of Net SE, unfortunately go away empty-handed - no money will flow back for them. But OPC Optics is exploring the possibility of offering Net SE customers who have paid for a lens and not received it individual discounts on the purchase of an available lens.


The new owner also criticizes the business conduct of Net SE: "It was regrettable to see how Meyer Optik Görlitz, after the successful relaunch in 2014, lost more and more reputation in the market due to quality fluctuations, the many, partly parallel crowdfunding projects via various platforms, pre-sales of unpublished lenses via its own website and ongoing delays in delivery.

Nevertheless, we now see an opportunity for us to professionally and successfully establish a traditional German brand of photography," says Timo Heinze, Managing Director of OPC Optics. "We will pursue a definitely different, rather conservative approach and will not engage in any crowdfunding or pre-sales of products. As a manufacturer, you simply have to take the time to let such a brand grow, so that your own capacities can grow accordingly and a consistently high quality can be guaranteed."
