About Northumbria Optical Coatings

NOC Headquarters

Northumbria Optical Coatings Ltd was established in 1995, specialising in design and manufacture of Infrared Optical Filters and Coatings, covering the spectral range ~1.5um – 20.0um.

We have a well established national & international customer base and as a major manufacturer, (not simply a stockist), we offer very competitive prices for standard and non-standard filters.

Our vast stock of standard size filters allows us to despatch many orders within 48 hours.

Our filters have many applications including environmental monitoring, analysis and control of gaseous effluent, analysis of vehicle exhaust gases, ozone layer monitoring, night vision systems and space applications.

We are happy to quote for any specific requirements you may have.

Formerly operating as a business unit for Rolls Royce International Research & Development based in Newcastle upon Tyne, ownership of the successful business was transferred to ourselves (the specialists who ran it for IRD) in 1995.

Operating totally independent of Rolls Royce plc, the success of NOC required a move to larger premises in March 2003.  The new modern premises in South Tyneside were designed and fitted to meet our increasing needs due to the demands of the market place.

Being a customer driven company, we will endeavour to meet your requirements through our quality systems and service.
