Signet Armorlite Renews Kodak Licensing Agreement

The Optical Journal - Optical News With Independent Views

Carlsbad, CA (September, 2013)..Signet Armorlite, Inc is pleased to announce the recent renewal of a 17-year licensing agreement with Eastman Kodak Company.

Since 1993, Signet Armorlite has licensed the Kodak name in the marketing of ophthalmic lenses worldwide. With almost seventy years of optical innovation, Signet Armorlite recognizes a kindred spirit with Kodak in its commitment to touching lives through technology and innovation. The KODAK Lens name has allowed Signet Armorlite to attach a trusted name to its proprietary lens designs, treatments and materials. This partnership has been solidified with the recent renewal of the agreement.

As Kodak moves forward, it has restated its commitment to delivering imaging innovation with superior color quality based on its history of imaging and color science technology. In alignment with Kodak, Signet Armorlite offers KODAK Lenses with digital lens technology that focuses on color enhancement and contrast sensitivity. The new “See the Colors of Life” campaign launching at Vision Expo West in Las Vegas this year will bring awareness of how significant color vision is in daily life.

“For the last twenty years, Kodak and Signet Armorlite have shared a goal of providing quality products and technology innovation to their respective customers,” states Brad Staley, President of Signet Armorlite, Inc. “The renewal of our contract with Kodak signals nothing but great success for both companies going forward.”
