Fresnel Optics, Inc. (Fresnel) is a subsidiary of the Reflexite Corporation (Reflexite), a global supplier of microstructured optics components for the lighting, solar power, instrumentation and display industries. Fresnel produces durable, low stress nickel tooling which is used by the two business units of the parent company. Reflexite was recently acquired by Orafol, a private German corporation that has a need for a much larger volume of the tooling currently being manufactured by Fresnel. Orafol considered establishing a new manufacturing facility in Germany and Savannah, Georgia, before deciding to expand Fresnel’s manufacturing operation in Monroe County. Fresnel is proposing a 48,000 square foot expansion to their 28,000 square foot facility on 5.2 acres in the Town of Henrietta. The $4 million project is projected to create 7 new FTE within three years. The applicant seeks approval of JobsPlus property tax abatement. The JobsPlus job creation requirement is 3 FTE.
