This was my 4th tour of Cooke Optics in Leicester, England.
The factory has come a long way since previous visits in 2006, 2009 and 2013. It is now a state-of-the-art, modern facility with clean rooms, the latest machines, and many more technicians.
As Les Zellan described it, “The glass manufacturing area is cleaner and neater and there are many more CNC machines. The assembly area is now twice the size. We added a second floor. All the ‘dirty’ work is done upstairs: the metal work, irises, assembling the outers and inners, and cleaning it all. Then the process moves downstairs to a gigantic clean room on the ground floor.
