Wrexham-based spectacle lens producer, Hoya, is celebrating the news that it has been voted Optical Supplier of the Year by the optician’s industry.

This accolade, highly coveted within the optometry industry for its indication of exemplary service and high quality was awarded to Hoya on Saturday May 30 at the annual Optician Awards, held at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole.

Judges for the awards spoke of the impression made on them by Hoya’s commitment to service and prompt turnaround Judged on Hoya’s excellent service, evidenced by a 98% on time in full delivery record. Hoya’s customers across the UK, ranging from large companies to small private practices, provided outstanding testimonials.

Hoya Lens’ UK managing director, Martin Batho, collected the award and commented: “We are really happy to receive this award, and the recognition of our focus on quality of product innovation, service, and customer relationship support.

“Our philosophy “Your Success is Our Vision” brings many guarantees to our customers and we would like to thank them for their loyalty. This allows us to continue to invest globally and locally in new technologies and processes to support their patients. We all need glasses at some point in our lives and at Hoya we aim to bring the very best vision, along with tough, durable, lens coatings to ensure crystal clear vision.”

The supplier of the year award comes at an opportune moment for Hoya as the company also celebrates its 30th anniversary of UK manufacturing this year as well as following on the heels of an international iF Material Award, presented in Germany, for the superb quality of Hoyas lightweight lens, Eyvia.

This new product is proof of Hoya’s investment in innovation and product diversity to satisy an increasingly aethically demanding consumer market. The lens is aimed at glasses wearers with very high prescriptions who want the thinnest lenses possible.
