BaySpec, Inc. was founded by optical engineers on the premise of manufacturing rugged, reliable, high-performance devices. Despite the company’s relatively small size, we weathered the boom and bust of the telecommunications technology industry, outperforming many large competitors to become one of the market leaders, having shipped more than 35,000 different spectroscopic systems. The same approaches that enabled our systems to weather the telecom competition have also been utilized in our spectroscopy devices.
Unlike most optical device companies today, BaySpec manufactures every major component of our systems in-house in the USA. From packaging the detectors, to manufacturing the gratings, to developing the control electronics and operating software, we do it all in our Silicon Valley headquarters. This vertical integration allows us to be much more creative and extremely cost-effective, truly setting BaySpec apart from the competition.
