United Lens Company (ULC) has been a leading innovator in the optical element industry for nearly 100 years. We attribute much of ULC’s success to our custom capabilities, which are unmatched throughout the industry; moreover, we believe our dedication to customer satisfaction also sets us apart from competitors.
In an effort to better serve our local community, ULC recently joined the Smaller Business Association of New England (SBANE). This organization manages a network of New England area businesses that work together to improve their overall productivity.
SBANE is a not-for-profit organization that includes over 600 member-companies throughout the six-state region. The group was established to effectively give a legislative voice to the small business companies that are so vital to New England’s growth and sustenance. Member companies who are a part of SBANE help to regulate policies, share ideas and promote products within the network.
Becoming a part of SBANE is an exciting accomplishment for us at ULC. Membership benefits our employees, who will have increased access to educational programs and training, creating a more diverse and versatile workforce. The new business contacts and network will only help to increase our visibility throughout New England, the East Coast and the entire country. Additionally, SBANE encourages company growth by offering grants, capital connections and marketing opportunities.
ULC has always been at the forefront for providing custom optical elements for the aerospace, astronomical, fiber optics, medical, and military industries, among others. By partnering with SBANE, we will continue not only to grow from within, but to also extend our reach globally with an ever-expanding product line and manufacturing capabilities.
Most importantly, this partnership will enable us to better serve our local community, because without their support, United Lens would not have grown into the company it is today. We intend to continue delivering high-quality, unmatched service for another 100 years—at least.
