Our Mission

SQS_Light_View_CampusSQS will continue provisioning of products ranging from common, however very precise and reliable, optical fiber assemblies of Standard, High, and Excellent Quality Categories, to various fiber optic “specialties, delicacies, and finenesses” including technically very demanding connections, e.g. Polarization Maintaining (PM), High Power, Multi Fiber, Hermetic, Armored, Single Mode Multicore Fiber, etc.
High quality and reliability are features we want our products and services to be perceived by our customers.

Keeping up with high technologies, investing into manufacturing and R&D facilities, and uncompromising quality management will help us to become one of the leading European companies focused on fiber optics component development and manufacturing. We want to establish SQS as a strong competitive company capable of resisting external circumstances and competitive pressures. We will continue with the factory production program diversification mainly by fiber optic products addressing non-telecom industrial sectors. Our competitive advantage has been and will be our ability to supply complete tailor-made customer solutions including highly demanding industrial and military applications.

In collaboration with our partners, we also supply nano-precision motion control positioning products and systems by Alio Industries, media convertors, transceivers, LAN and WAN components by KTI, and optical fiber components by Yazaki.

Certificates and Customer Audits

TUV logoSQS has acquired not only widely recognized ISO certification including quality and environmental management systems according to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 standards, but also very demanding certification proving that we have established and applied a quality management system for Assembling and Testing of Semiconductor Parts according to the ISO/TS 16949:2009 standard for automotive industry. All ISO certification and following regular auditing in SQS Vlaknova optika is performed by prestigious international certification organization TÜV SÜD.
We have also been certified by our suppliers/business partners to prove our qualification to use their technologies including Diamond, Reichle & De-Massari, Gooch & Housego, and Avago Technologies.
Another very important proof of our high quality standards and uncompromised quality management are customer audits.

Customer References

SQS Vláknová optika a.s.Among our main customers, there are telecommunication operators, installation companies, cable TV network operators, and many other companies from various industrial sectors.

Our customers include a wide spectrum of companies not only from telecommunications but also from many other industrial sectors where fiber optics finds still more and more applications. This is especially so-called integrated optics, i.e. optical components developed for integration into larger units like modules, devices or equipment for various applications using the data transmission in the form of optical signals, such as optical measurement instruments and systems, sensors and sensory systems in power engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical, petrochemical, mining, automotive industries, in health care for various diagnostic systems, and in many other applications.

Our Vision

  • Manufacturing of special fiber optic and optoelectronic products for applications in telecommunications, medicine, aviation, chemistry, engineering, car industry, measuring technology, and in other sectors
  • Research and Development of new products, manufacture technologies, and production equipment
  • Product Testing according to customer requests
  • Customer Support in the form of customer project management (e.g. technical support in the phase of project preparation)
  • Our company will continue R&D collaboration with technical universities and the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

Company's History

SQS Vláknová optika a.s.SQS Vláknova optika a.s. was founded in 1994, in Nova Paka, Czech Republic. The letters S-Q-S in the name of the company are the first letters of three founder members’ names: Jiri Simek, Wilhelm Quittner, Zdenek Svitorka; and the expression “Vlaknova optika” means “Fiber Optics” in Czech.

Initially the company was specialized in fiber optic patch cord and pigtail manufacturing exclusively based on Diamond patented connector technology of active core alignment.

In October 2000, SQS significantly broadened the assortment of manufactured products with a complete line of "classic" ceramic one-layer ferrule connectors, and started offering its fiber optic products and services to customers worldwide.
In December 2002, SQS Vláknová optika originally registered as a limited company was transformed to a corporation.
