Jabil Optics has opened its new 2000-sq-m Optics Technology Innovation Center in Haifa, Israel, to provide the Israel tech community with additional opportunities in computational cameras, projection systems, and combined solutions.

“Our Optics Technology Innovation Center is fundamental to Jabil’s mission of becoming the most technologically advanced manufacturing services provider in the world,” said Irv Stein, vice president of Jabil Optics. “We recognized the growing demand for premium optoelectronic solutions more than a decade ago and proactively sought to address it with the acquisition of the Carl Zeiss projections systems group. Our support for optoelectronics customers has been on a steady, upward trajectory since. Today, our unique services help to drive the market for mobile devices, augmented reality, virtual reality, automotive solutions, and medical devices, to name a few, and we’re well-positioned as a manufacturing services leader in this fast-growing market.”

The Jabil Optics facility meets the growing demands of customers who are looking for specialized expertise and resources for complex assembly and integration of optoelectronic systems. This includes optical design, development and manufacturing capabilities for camera modules, and projection systems. These solutions are important assets for smartphones, tablets, e-readers, and laptops, because they prepare to serve mobile, virtual, augmented, and extended reality products seeing rapid growth and adoption.

The center will also create leading-edge automotive products and solutions, including advanced driver-assistance components, display measurement systems, head-up display units, and lidar systems. Today, Jabil employs more than 600 people in Israel and expects that figure to grow.

“Jabil’s advanced manufacturing and technology capabilities are enabling the automotive industry to develop increasingly complex electronics that improve safety, efficiency, intelligence, and connectivity of all types of vehicles,” said Chad Morley, vice president of Jabil Automotive and Transportation. “We’re actively engaged in several global automotive opportunities to industrialize and bring to market advanced lidar solutions for mass-market adoption. By leveraging our cost-optimized hardware, global manufacturing expertise, and strategic partnerships, we can meet our customers’ needs for dependable, high-quality products.”

Jabil is a product solutions company providing comprehensive design, manufacturing, supply chain, and product management services. Jabil Optics, a division of Jabil Green Point, focuses on opto-electrical solutions, including computational cameras, projection systems, and acoustics.
