    Outsource Lab Required - lens/edge/mount

    My partner and I are looking to open an eye glass boutique in Calgary AB Canada. We are looking to outsource the lab portion of the business, as our business model will be a hands off approach when it comes to the lab.

    I'm inquiring with a local shop that can supply the lenses, perform the edging and mounting. That said, I'm exploring all avenues including non-local whether that be in Canada or not. I would like to do my research on these companies, so if anyone knows of any please let me know.

    Thank you.

    I am in the luxury business and do our now lab work with lenses supplied by a big lab that gives me personal service and custom lenses, coatings, prices and anything else that makes sense for all of us.
    I have the best edger ME-1200, 8 base wrap tracer and software to work with other stores; let me know if this is of interest to you after you look at my website. www.eyetopian.com
    I have some capacity so it makes sense to utilize my equipment.
    We do 70% drill mounts.
