Esco Optics was officially founded in March of 1955. Co-founders Michael Esposito (the great uncle of current President, Lee Steneken) and Fredrick Stuhler began selling telescope kits to astronomy enthusiasts by mail order catalog. Fueled by a commitment to quality and innovation, Esco quickly grew, providing custom optical components that helped launch satellites, map the stars and measure the universe.

Today, Esco works with the defense, medical, automotive and aerospace industries, facilitating the next-generation of optical advancements. We’re focused and dedicated on developing the new methodologies that will drive us—and our industry—forward. If you'd like a quote on custom optics just let us know
