BIRKERØD, Denmark, Sept. 11, 2009 – NKT Photonics A/S of Denmark said it has opened a subsidiary, NKT Photonics Inc., in Morganville, N.J., to serve its growing North American market.

“We have done this successfully before in central Europe by opening NKT Photonics GmbH in Germany four years ago,” said Chuong Tran, vice president of sales and marketing. “NKT Photonics Inc. will entirely focus on providing sales support for new customers and forthcoming public tenders in North America as well as technical support for already deployed NKT Photonics products in this geographical region.”

NKT Photonics, part of the Danish industrial conglomerate NKT Holding A/S, was formed in June through the merger of Crystal Fibre, a commercial supplier of microstructured specialty fiber, and Koheras, a maker of ultraprecise fiber lasers such as the SuperK supercontinuum white light lasers. NKT’s products are used in the materials processing, biophotonics, metrology, optical sensors, communications, test and measurement, high-resolution spectroscopy and lidar markets.

The offices of NKT Photonics in Morganville, located at 1400 Campus Drive West, officially opened Sept. 1. The company can contacted at (732) 972-9937.
