Cooke Optics to Beef Up Factory and Workforce
Anamorphic/I demand cited
LOS ANGELES —Cooke Optics announced that it will extend its factory and workforce in Leicester, England, to accommodate the sustained and growing demand for its lenses. Cooke said a growing order book for its new range of Anamorphic/i lenses—launch at NAB 2013—as well as continuing demand for the miniS4/I, 5/i and S4/i ranges, are driving the factory expansion.
Cooke will add a further 300 square meters, which will house more assembly and projection facilities as well as an R&D laboratory. A 10 percent increase in the workforce will be required to fuel the expansion.
