(Press Release) Global Optics Inc. announced that any independent optical laboratory in the U.S. can now apply to become a Global Optics Associate Member.

Associate members receive access to an inventory of more than 1 million lenses made up of over 150,000 unique products/OPCs, including the recently launched TRIBRID high index lenses. They also benefit from consolidated purchasing as well as logistics and supply-chain solutions.

“We are pleased at the prospect of expanding our network and building new relationships with more independent laboratories,” said Barbara Vitchus, president and general manager, Global Optics. “In addition to offering our members a wide selection of products and cost savings, we also welcome our members to share ideas and goals with us and each other to enable business success.”

Founded in 1971 with eight shareholder laboratories, Global Optics now serves over 200 optical laboratories with products from more than 20 vendors. Global Optics continues to offer an Equity Owner membership level through which an independent laboratory can become a shareholder and gain access to additional benefits.

“The cornerstone of any business is its inventory and the control of this inventory,” said Chris Bowers, of Walman Optical. “Having Global as our warehouse has enabled us to have the best fill rates I’ve seen in my 37 years with Walman.”
