Manufactures and supplies optical prototypes.

Each month, Optimax takes 25 percent of its profits and distributes the money equally among all full-time employees, regardless of position or seniority. Management stresses the importance of approachability through its Lunch With an Executive program; monthly OptiChat meetings promote dialogue throughout the company. And the company's Beach Club provides employees the chance to escape New York winters and spend time in Cocoa Beach, Florida—close enough to Cape Canaveral to watch the launching of rockets, some of which have Optimax lenses on board.
