About our company

Company profile

The company Joachim Bernard Optische Komponenten was founded in 1995 by Joachim Bernard in Naunheim, a district of the optics stronghold Wetzlar.

Since the 1st January 2014, following the successful integration of a former business partner and Niklas Bernard’s admission to our executive board, we have been pooling our expertise within the enterprise Joachim Bernard Optische Komponenten GmbH.

Areas of expertise

Our expertise is the development and manufacturing of optical systems in the technical and medical endoscopy sectors, colposcopy, micro-optics, microscopy, optical image processing systems (measuring and inspection technology) as well as further application-specific optics and optomechanics.

We are an OEM-partner for the development of customised optical systems, give advice to and support our customers from R&D to the start of production. Moreover, we manufacture according to the customer’s order and distribute a variety of commercial off-the-shelf products for the image processing industry as well as the medical sector.

The over 30 years of experience of our staff, the enthusiasm for the products as well as certified process operations (DIN EN ISO 9001:2015) stand for the highest quality and diligence in all production stages – from conception to the final product.


The quality management system of the company is certified according to the requirements of the german national organization for standardization since the 15th July 1998. Since the 17th November 2017 we follow the updated standard DIN EN ISO 9001:2015.
