“I just want to thank you, Fiber Optic Center, and let you know that you guys are the BEST and have the BEST customer service. You are one of my top 5 suppliers with the best customer service and I am so happy to work with you
“I would like to give feedback regarding the analysis we did with Fiber Optic Center’s polishing papers. We did really detailed analysis and can confirm, that AngstromLap Ultimas lapping film has better performance in terms of number of reuse and we also observed less residue after polishing during visual inspection. We were able to reduce the number of retries on the visual inspection by more than a half as well as the number of connectors being repolished.
The reduction of the extra cost on these operations will overbalance the cost of the papers, so they are actually less expensive.”

“I am very pleased with the years of good help and quick reactions of Fiber Optic Center.
As we are located in the Netherlands we have a lot of contact with your Dutch employees being Erwin Gelderblom and Marcel Buijs.
Both are friendly and always eager in helping us.
Furthermore, the most contact is with Ethan Weiss who handles the quotations. Also, Ethan is always of good help and replies rather quickly.
Overall we are satisfied with Fiber Optic Center as our professional distributor for Fiber Optics items, tools, equipment, and knowledge.”

“Due to the pandemic, in-place calibrations have become difficult, so until the virus is under control, FOC provided Furukawa Brazil with the following helpful solution: They sent a calibration kit and gave us detailed instructions and online support to perform the task. The connection of the calibration kit with the Module that will be calibrated is aided by the support and documents very well explained. With the connections ready, the calibration process starts through a completely intuitive software, showing pictures of each step of the calibration, from the connection of the optical cords to the printing of the calibration seal and calibration certificate. The calibration process was very comfortable for me, without difficulties. We are very happy with the support FOC provided.”

…FOC’s prompt and friendly response to inquiries is very helpful, especially when time is important…
“FOC has earned our business for our grind & polish needs. From purchasing consumables to consulting on a particular issue or need, servicing existing equipment, and procuring new equipment, FOC has been there for us. FOC’s prompt and friendly response to inquiries is very helpful, especially when time is important (…and when there is a need, time is always important).”

“On 8/27/2019 I was alerted that we were out of OP-29-GEL optical adhesive and our system had not placed that item in my queue to purchase. It was really late in the day, almost 3:00 PM Pacific time. I knew there was probably no way that I could get the product in by the next day, especially when I found out that you were located in Massachusetts.
So I gave your company a call and Brian answered. He helped me with pricing and told me that you had the product in stock. I communicated how badly we needed the adhesive and he said that he would check to see if he could get it out the door and would call me back. Again, I’m thinking there is no way. He called back in less than ten minutes and said he could make it happen so I gave him a purchase order and payment information still thinking to myself there is no way we will get this the next day.
Well, thanks to the efforts of Brian and whoever does the shipping in your company, we received the product the next day early am, without missing any production time. Brian and the shipping person should be commended on their efforts and the great customer service. Again, thank you for the effort you put out to ensure we received what we needed.”

… one thing I like about working with FOC is the ability that they have to explain the technical aspects of fiber optics to all levels of my work force. Whether it’s a seasoned veteran, or a new hire, every time they come out our team improves …
“I approached Fiber Optic Center because we were having a problem getting consistent results with our connector polishing process. Paul, who handles my account, told me that he would see if he could get one of the outside guys to stop by and take a look. Within a week, Dan was in my office, working hand in hand with our operators to figure out the problem. Dan stayed late that evening, and even came back the next morning to put a process in place that greatly improved our process and yield! We saw an immediate improvement in both quality and efficiency.
The one thing I like about working with FOC is the ability that they have to explain the technical aspects of fiber optics to all levels of my work force. Whether it’s a seasoned veteran, or a new hire, every time they come out our team improves. They are easy to work with, and always eager to help out. I would recommend FOC to everyone except my competition!”

“An Edmund stage for adjusting the height on our Sagitta Laser cleaver broke. Erwin stripped down his demo machine back home in the Netherlands and expressed the part up to us with instructions from the manufacturer on how to replace it. We were up running again faster than we really could expect. That kind of service and support is what makes me keep coming back to FOC.”

“I have had a long, wonderful relationship with the personnel at FOC. They are extremely professional and customer service minded. On one occasion we had difficulty with a particular machine’s performance. We contacted them, and they were quick to respond and to advocate for us with the factory to remedy the issues. Mario and David especially were attentive to our needs, and were not satisfied till we were happy with the results. Their competency and knowledge of the industry is also superb. They are my ‘go to’ default for equipment technology and industry trends.”
