HOYA Vision Care announced that they have opened their newest laboratory in Linthicum, Maryland. “The opportunity to locally service independent ECPs in another market is exciting for us. The Baltimore area has a lot of potential and we want to grow our presence here,” said Michael Dougher, Chief Operating Officer for HOYA Vision Care.
The new lab is located at 514 Progress Drive in Linthicum, MD. “We are excited to bring HOYA’s leading edge lens designs, materials and treatments to local independent practitioners as well as provide additional training, customised 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,” said Amy Lombardo, Regional Manager for Hoya Vision Care. HOYA territory managers Tammy Maxey and Janelle Trowbridge will be the primary local representatives for the new lab. HOYA’s support of independent practices shows in their commitment to service accounts locally.
In addition to local territory managers, operations at the new facility will be headed by laboratory manager Tim Shields. Shields stated, “I am looking forward to using my experience to help our laboratory grow HOYA’s presence around Baltimore and the surrounding Mid-Atlantic Region by focusing on quality and service with the best lens technology available.” A ribbon cutting ceremony and reception are planned for later this month. Current and prospective customers will be invited to partake in the festivities.
