Duclos Lenses have announced that they have purchased the assets of Southern California based motion picture lens manufacturer UniqOptics.
The two organizations have collaborated in the past while developing lens systems and test equipment for companies such as NASA, the US Military, Ford Motor Co., and motion picture camera manufacturers. Projects included the Signature Series Prime Lenses, Avatar Hi-G Lens, Micrometer Diascope, and several others.
UniqOptics ceased production of their Signature Series Primes after legal tribulations set them back in manufacturing. The assets purchased by Duclos Lenses include remaining inventory, spare parts for service, test equipment, assembly tooling, and miscellaneous accessories.
Duclos Lenses has no immediate plans to continue production of the Signature Series Primes. Service and support of existing products is the primary directive for Duclos Lenses. With an already extensive register of cinema optic test equipment, experienced technicians, and dedication to quality, Duclos Lenses continues it’s endeavor to be the world’s premier motion picture lens service facility.
