It’s been a bit of a wild ride for Meyer Optik, but probably not half as wild as for those who’ve backed their products and projects on Indiegogo and Kickstarter over the last couple of years. In August of this year, NetSE Group, the company behind Meyer Optik Görlitz, Emil Busch A.G. Rathenau, Oprema Jena, C.P. Goerz, Ihagee Elbaflex and A. Schacht brands filed for bankruptcy.
Two months later the insolvency proceedings began, and it was announced that none of the backers would be receiving their lenses, nor would they be getting their money back. Now, though, there may be some new hope for at least the Meyer Optik Görlitz brand, as it’s been acquired by OPC Optics (Precision Components Europe GmBH).
