Bookmark and Share

Carl Zeiss Optronics USA Inc., which makes periscopes, binoculars and optical electronics, announced today that it will locate its U.S. corporate headquarters in Wake Forest.

The firm is a subsidiary of the German company Carl Zeiss Optronics GmbH. Carl Zeiss plans to sell its products to the U.S. military, the Department of Homeland Security and law enforcement agencies.

The company's Wake Forest office will include executives and engineering staff. The company's announcement did not say how many employees it would have in the Wake Forest office.

The N.C. Department of Commerce said today that Carl Zeiss did not receive any grant money to locate in the state. Five months ago it was the state of South Carolina that was talking up its newfound relationship with Carl Zeiss.

In May, the South Carolina Department of Commerce and Richland County announced that Carl Zeiss would locate its first U.S. office in Richland County.

Carl Zeiss is one of the leading manufacturers of advanced optronic, optical and precision engineered products for military and civilian applications. The products are used for border surveillance, space technology and reconnaissance.
