Cylite continues to grow and launches new website

Cylite Production2

Australian HP-OCT manufacturer Cylite continues to grow with an ever-expanding workforce and the launch of its new website.

With the imminent release of the HP-OCT, the company has been ramping up production and increasing its staff.  During the past six months, the operations team alone has grown from seven to 20 people, with 10 more positions to be filled within the next nine months.

“Due to the complexity involved with manufacturing each HP-OCT, our production team is highly skilled and Cylite invests heavily in staff training to enable the business to scale-up,” Cylite vice president of operations Mr Simon Davis said.

“With production capacity tripling this financial year it is an exciting time to be involved in Cylite’s growth.”

The overall workforce has similarly expanded, now numbering well over 50 employees, primarily based in the manufacturing site in Melbourne. The production and workforce has expanded to such a degree that the company plans to move premises early next calendar year.

The move will not only allow for future growth in employees but also enable the expansion of the company’s high-tech “clean room” space to cater for the expected ramp-up of ongoing global production from the local Melbourne site.

Cylite plans to continue this growth despite the challenges of the pandemic and currently has four positions advertised in the ‘Careers’ section of its new website, which was launched this month.

“Already generating multiple daily inquiries from interested clinicians, the new website aims to inform interested parties about the technology behind the HP-OCT and to keep readers up to date with news and events,” the company stated.

To fulfil the first aim, the site’s ‘Resources’ section includes informative descriptions under such titles as ‘The Hyperparallel Difference’‘Understanding Beamlets’ and ‘How Volume Capture Works’, and a descriptive video aims to give the viewer an intuitive understanding of the capabilities of the system.

“We hope that our new website not only helps readers to understand the technology behind HP-OCT, but also to get to know us a little better too,” Cylite said.
