The Roditi International Corporation is the leading distributor in Europe of high quality piezoelectric and optical grade quartz crystals, laser crystals, electro-optic materials, optical components and processing equipment. Expanding into new markets with new products in the forefront of technology has been the cornerstone of Roditi's constant and successful growth.
Incorporated on 29th August 1935, Roditi rapidly developed into a successful trading company, exporting synthetic textiles, Chinese silk fabrics and commissary goods to British embassies and other international organisations throughout the world. Brazil represented a major market, and in 1951 with the freeze of foreign currency payments for â€œnon-essentialâ€ luxury goods, Roditi and a major Brazilian importer adapted to changing times and began a highly successful trade, exchanging textiles for natural quartz. In view of the rapidly expanding European demand for its use in communication systems, watches, automotive and consumer electronics, the sale and distribution of natural quartz crystals became a major part of Roditi's business.
