American Optics – Endoscope Replacement Parts is the global leader in the manufacture and distribution of aftermarket replacement parts for medical endoscopes.
Headquartered in Wellesley, Massachusetts, and production facility in Europe we seek to support the global Endoscope community with our portfolio of more than 3,000 parts and collaborate on developing new ones.
The merging of two specialty suppliers of endoscope repair parts formed the core of AO-ERP’s initial product portfolio.
American-Optics, LTD (AO) was established in 1998 in Burlington, Ontario with a focus on optical and mechanical repair components for rigid endoscopes quickly becoming the market leader.
Endoscope Replacement Parts, LLC (ERP), established in Southern Florida in 1997, grew out of a specialty machining shop to support mechanical parts for both rigid and flexible endoscopes where there was no established supply. They subsequently transitioned to offering a complete portfolio of flexible repair components.
In 2017 AO-ERP acquired Micro Optics Europe, a fast-growing company located in Europe, Bulgaria, focused on the design and production of optical elements and assembly. The modern production technologies and equipment used, as well as the high quality of products, ensure a high level of competitiveness and a stable position on the international market.
Today, AO-ERP is ISO 13485:2016 certified and is focused on meeting the evolving needs of the third-party service organizations dedicated to delivering the highest quality repairs with OEM quality components to reduce the growing cost of healthcare. We are committed to grow our capacity to overcome supply constraints in the market, and it is our intent to stay ahead of the evolving demand for the highest quality replacement parts.
