OGP (Shanghai) Co., Ltd

Is a wholly-owned subsidiary invested by QVI-OGP in China

OGP (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. is a wholly-owned subsidiary invested by QVI-OGP in China,
aiming to better serve the Chinese market and provide customers with more professional sales support, maintenance and training services.
The company has experienced professional and technical personnel to help improve the product quality of manufacturers, maintain the normal operation of their equipment and reduce customer inspection costs.

75 years of technical innovation

OGP began a working relationship with Eastman Kodak Company as the exclusive distributor for the Kodak Contour Projector®. OGP rapidly expanded and became a national leader in optical inspection. In 1955, one of the founders of OGP, Edward C. Polidor, formed Automation Gages, Inc., a firm specializing in highly customized inspection equipment.
The equipment designed and manufactured by Automation Gages filled such diverse needs as automatic measuring of germanium transistor wafers to evaluation of the wash-and-wear characteristics of textiles.

Automation Gages soon became the national distributor for Bausch and Lomb scientific industrial products, including optical comparators and analytical microscopes. In 1959, OGP found its way to Detroit and became part of the Ex-Cell-O Corporation when Kodak sold the Contour Projector Line.

To meet future challenges, Automation Gages embarked on a program to build the core technologies needed for market leadership. Between 1969 and 1973, they acquired General Measurement Research, Inc. (manufacturer of the Digital Incremental Glass scale system), Visual Inspection Products (designers and builders of chart layout machines and 1:1 pantographs), the optical comparator product lines from Ex-Cell-O and Bendix Measurement Division, and, finally, Optical Gaging Products, Inc. All operations, including manufacturing, were consolidated under one roof in Rochester, New York in 1973.

A reflection of OGP's 75 Years of Advancing Optical Metrology
