One of the most respected operators in the optical stress measurement industry, Sharples Stress Engineers, will stop existing in its current configuration following the retirement of Ed Sharples, its owner.
The legacy and services of Sharples will be continued by Ayrox srl with the additional value of ISO 17025 accredited calibration and testing services for polarimeters.
Sharples has served clients from all over the world in the field of glass and plastics optical stress measurement, polarimeters, calibration standards manufacturing and calibration services for more than 60 years.
Ayrox is a well know player in the field of glass quality control. “We have been collaborating for a long time with Sharples, so it was a natural step for us to acquire the future of Sharples and to make it stronger with our ISO 17025 accredited calibration services,” said Ayrox Chief Technology Officer Mikko Suomi. “The transition will be seamless for the existing and new clients,” he added.
