    Exclamation Need Assistance/Representation with purchasing optical lab equipment

    I was wondering if there are any purchasers’ representatives or other one-stop shops who can assist me with purchasing optical lab equipment for a new one-hour eyeglass retail store I am establishing in Dallas Fort Worth. I expect to purchase equipment from several different manufacturers, including National Optronics, Gerber-Coburn, etc.

    I would be particularly grateful for recommendations of firms/purchasing consultants who have experience with negotiating prices and obtaining financing.

    Thanks.

    Contact Leo Hadley at Vision Systems Inc, they sell new and used equipment. They work with a lot of vendors so they are probably going to be your best bet. Plus and this is a big plus they are a real stand up kind fo company you won't find one negative thing said about them and many great testimonials here and everywhere else.

    Depending on the volume of surfaced lenses you will be producing per day you may want to consider our FastGrind System. Visit our web site www.superoptical.com or call us at 1-800-543-7376. We exhibited at the Texas show in Austin last weekend in case you were there?
