Lensel Optics Pvt. Ltd. was formed in February, 1979 by Mr. Shree Rege. The production commenced in 1981 with our first product range consisting entirely of Compression Molded Fresnel Lenses for use in Overhead Projectors. We were the only company at the time in India to indigenously develop the compression molding technology. In 1982, we received the prestigious Parkhe Award for Import Substitution from the Mahratta Chamber of Commerce and in 1995 our in-house research capability received formal recognition from the Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India.
