A global company with six facilities in the U.S. and Europe, Gentex designs, tests, and produces all its high performance optics in the U.S. where the company recently invested in a new 12,700 square foot optics engineering and manufacturing facility located in Carbondale, Pennsylvania, the company’s headquarters.

Vertical Integration

Being vertically integrated, from design capability and raw material manufacturing through end-product fabrication and assembly, Gentex has complete control over the quality of its products. Controlling the entire value chain also enables Gentex to shorten the design cycle, which means customers can have their optics developed and brought to market more quickly. Gentex truly is a one-stop shop.

This system is supplemented with additional quality system requirements that meet the AS9001C standard, a standard that provides strict requirements established for the aviation, space, and defense industries. Both of these standards ensure that our Quality Management System consistently provides products that meet our customer’s requirements, enhance their satisfaction, and ensure process measurements to support continuous improvements.
