ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 25, 2016 — Navitar Inc., a manufacturer of precision optics and imaging system components, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Hyperion Development LLC, a design firm and manufacturer of custom optical assemblies and OEM solutions. The deal is expected to close by the end of the first quarter, with operation out of four engineering, design and production facilities in San Ramon, Calif., Woburn, Mass., Denville, N.J., and Rochester, N.Y. “We are very excited to welcome everyone at Hyperion Development into the Navitar family,” said Jeremy and Julian Goldstein, owners of Navitar. “This transaction brings together two industry leaders and creates an optical design powerhouse.” Hyperion expanded in 2014 with the acquisition of AMF Optics Inc. and American Diamond Turning LLC.
