History

Longman Optical has been around for some time. Originally part of the University Of Tasmania which started operations in the 1940’s. Many thousand of optics where produced for the Australian and British Army. Science, technology and technical skill combined to produce prisms for sights and other military equipment which were unobtainable anywhere else. Tasmania with their excellence in fabricating the optical components were recognised around the world

After the second world war, Ian Longman owned and produced optics to his retirement in 1989. Ian passed away not long after from an accident. Ian Mansfield was trained under Ian Longman and now owns and runs Longman Optical. He has been in the optical business for 32 years.

Longman optical runs a in-house optical manufacturing shop and can produce many precision optical components. With our OEM contacts and suppliers we can produce almost any optical capability you require which range from optical components, coatings, and repairs.

Our mission is to provide our customers with the best service and value in the industry. We combine fast and inexpensive prototyping, with our extensive manufacturing facilities, to bring the three most valued assets that every company desires in a supplier.

“Quality – Delivery – Price.”
