Servioptica is one of Colombia’s leading ophthalmic laboratories and an Essilor partner since 2013. Felipe Chajin, Chief Executive Officer: “My parents founded Servioptica thirty-five years ago. We have more than 1,000 employees across 28 cities in 5 laboratories and 31 edging/mounting facilities serving more than 3,000 customers, mainly independent optical stores.
The Essilor partnership model is exceptional. We have found a nice balance between being able to grow our family business in an entrepreneurial way while also implementing Essilor’s mission and strategy. Our secret is to leverage on each other’s strengths with the goal of meeting the vision needs of all Colombians.
Being part of the Essilor Group gives us direct access to resources, products, and technologies of an internationally recognized leader in the optical sector. It’s great to operate as one team with Essilor, adding value to our customers and successfully launching innovative products to meet vision needs as well as carrying out vision awareness campaigns.
We have based many of our local new initiatives on successful Group projects developed in India and China, and on philanthropic programs in the United States and Europe. We have set ourselves an ambitious goal: to increase eye care coverage to 75% of Colombia’s population of 49 million by 2022.“
