Hoya Vision Care Opens Lab Near Phoenix


TEMPE, Ariz.— Hoya Vision Care is expanding its prescription laboratory network by opening of a new lab in Tempe, Arizona, near Phoenix.

“The Phoenix market is big and getting bigger,” said Carson Utech, area sales director for Hoya Vision Care. “We need to have a local presence and the opportunity to service independent ECPs here is going to be exciting.”

Hoya territory managers Juliann Olson and Darren Rosenthal will be the primary local representatives for the new lab, located at 1635 West University Drive in Tempe. In addition to the territory managers, operations at the new laboratory will be headed by general manager Jody Jenne, a 30-year optical industry veteran.“We are all excited to be part of the Hoya team and have the ability to offer the latest technology to our customers and their patients,” said Jenne.

“This is a market that will truly benefit from the differentiating qualities of Hoya’s leading edge lens designs, materials and treatments,” noted Michael DeAngelo, regional manager for Hoya Vision Care. “Local independent practitioners will also receive additional training, customized reporting that helps uncover growth opportunities, in-office-ABO seminars and other tools to help advance practice profitability and provide the best vision solutions for patients.”

Hoya is planning to host a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception at the new lab in late March.
