Newport and REO Partner on HeNe Lasers


Newport Corporation is now the exclusive global sales partner for REO HeNe lasers.

REO has named Newport Corporation as the exclusive global sales partner for their extensive range of Helium-Neon lasers.  Specifically, this product line includes HeNe’s with red, green, yellow and infrared output, as well as a single frequency, stabilized HeNe that operates at 633 nm.  Under the terms of this agreement, which becomes effective July 1, 2013, Newport will inventory all REO HeNe products, and handle all sales and technical support for new customers through its global sales team. 

“From aerospace to semiconductor fabrication, and civil engineering to life sciences, the HeNe laser is still widely used because it’s the only low-cost source having a true TEM00 mode and low divergence. Plus, HeNe’s are easy to integrate,” notes Mark Carroll VP, Instruments Business at Newport Corporation. “As a result, they are employed in an incredibly wide range of applications in bioinstrumentation, spectroscopy, interferometry, inspection, metrology, particle measurement, holography and general research.  This product line is a natural extension for Newport, and enables us to deliver an even higher level of comprehensive service to our customers.” 

“Newport Corporation is well established as the leading supplier of a broad spectrum of photonics products, and has an unrivaled global infrastructure for sales, service, local inventory and support,” reports Ed Yousse, REO VP of Sales & Marketing.  “Partnering with them will result in shorter delivery times to customers throughout the world, as well as enhanced technical and after-sales support.  Simply stated, we’ve always strived to build the world’s best HeNe’s, and now we are backing them up with a world-class sales and support organization.  We look forward to working with Newport and the benefits that this will bring to HeNe customers worldwide.”
