Lumentum, the US manufacturer of optical and photonic products for optical networking and laser applications, has opened a new production unit and created over 100 jobs.

It is Lamentum's second production unit in the Slovenian town of Å kofljica, but the company is already planning further development. The construction of a third building nearby will facilitate the expansion of production capacity; a new centre will develop laser components other than optical fibres to be manufactured in Å kofljica.

Most of the company's production is sent to Lamentum in Thailand, where the assembled lasers are sold to Amada, a Japanese manufacturer of cutting and metal-making machines.

Currently, the company employs 57 workers.
