TOPTICA Photonics Inc.

Subsidiary North America

In 2002, TOPTICA began its base in North America when it founded the subsidiary TOPTICA Photonics Inc. (TPI) originally located in Westfield, Massachusetts. Leading TOPTICA Photonics Inc. for the past decade has been its CEO Mark A. Tolbert. As TOPTICA continued their growth they expanded to add the San Jose Applications center to support their West Coast business in 2012. TOPTICA Photonics Inc. began with just 3 employees and has since grown to 27 employees between the two facilities, with plans to increase this number even further in 2021.
