At Sydor Optics, the past and the present form a powerful partnership to build the future. Founded in 1964 by Stefan Sydor, a pioneer in the optic field, Sydor Optics has built its reputation on a solid foundation of traditional craftsmanship coupled with gutsy innovation. Stefan Sydor was known for his passion for optics and his ability to meet optical challenges with unique solutions. From his work on the Mt. Palomar Observatory’s 200-inch telescope mirror, to the worldwide installation of the Baker-Nunn Satellite Tracking Network, Sydor was at the forefront of the optical experts of his generation.

Today, Stefan Sydor’s legacy is carried on by his son, Jim Sydor, and grandsons, Matthew and Jonathan, who have developed Sydor Optics to meet the challenges of tomorrow. The expertise and attention to detail necessary to produce high precision optics is paired with the craftsmanship and latest optical fabrication technology. This has made Sydor Optics the vendor of choice for companies with needs ranging from prototype to large volume production, from highly complex to cost-efficient components, all manufactured to the same exacting standards of excellence. The company’s commitment to outstanding customer service is evident in its record of consistent quality and on-time delivery.
