On Tuesday June 25, Dr’s Choice Optical Lab hosted a Grand Opening ceremony at their new facility featuring the latest in optical lens manufacturing technology at 37 Gotha Street in Trenton. The ceremony was attended by local MPP Todd Smith, Mayor Jim Harrison, Quinte West Councillors, Quinte West Chamber of Commerce Quinte Economic Development, and
Trenval along with members of the public. Dr’s Choice Optical Lab is a locally owned business, serving customers in the Quinte Area and across Canada for over 25 years. This Grand Opening represents the culmination of a two-year construction project to expand and grow the business in Quinte West. This new facility makes lenses for glasses and sunglasses with a new robotic assembly line that improves the speed and quality of the products. With support of the Eastern Ontario Development Fund (EODF), this project invests in growing advanced manufacturing in Quinte West, and creating jobs for the community.

“I have worked for myself for 48 years,” according to Owner Tom Aquino, “and in that time we have continuously moved forward by keeping our businesses relevant to remain competitive. If you’re not keeping your business relevant in today’s marketplace, you’re out of business. “ “We are obsessed with quality,” adds Vice President Kyle Aquino, “And we use the best
technology available to make the highest quality lenses to ensure people see the very best they possibly can.”
