GERA, Germany, July 5, 2012 — More than 100 guests attended festivities to mark POG Präzisionsoptik Gera’s 20 years of business in the field of precision optics.
Clients, partners and long-term supporters from Europe, the US, Israel and South Africa, as well as employees of the company’s North American branch office, were among the celebrators.
