In 1984, Forrest incorporated Reynard Corporation in Laguna Niguel, CA to supply the optical industry with precision optical components and thin-film coatings. After several years of steady growth and high demand for its optical products, Reynard relocated and expanded into its current location in San Clemente, California in 1991. Additional capabilities and services were added, including in-house optical and mechanical fabrication, photolithography, assembly, electro mechanical design and a higher focus on custom precision optics.
Reynard has serviced diverse markets and continues to innovate in new and evolving markets (IR multi-spectral imaging, solar, and other green technologies). Reynard has participated in high-growth, volume, and precision markets such as telecommunication, homeland security, medical, and military. This experience gives us a deep understanding of the optical needs and environmental requirements of these markets.
