Carl Zeiss Canada Ltd. was founded in 1963 with the scientific division selling and servicing, laboratory and surgical microscopes, and related products. Our National Headquarters is located in Toronto, Ontario, with over 80 sales and service staff servicing the country from coast-to-coast. In 1979, the optical division was added supplying lenses and eye glasses to the Canadian market. By 1992, the optical division had grown into a full service optical lab with lens surfacing and coating capabilities. With continued growth and customer support Carl Zeiss Canada continues to expand. In 2002, Carl Zeiss Canada expanded further by reintroducing the Carl Zeiss Meditec lines of surgical and ophthalmic equipment to its medical sales and service group.
Locally, our business units include Medical Systems, and Microscopy including Electron/Ion Microscopes, Vision Care (spectacle lens) and Sport Optics (binoculars, rifle and spotting scopes) are distributed by Gentec International.
