Our history

We are proud of our roots – learn more about us

Early years

Fred Ferson, great grandfather of recent PFG management, founded Ferson Optics in the nineteen forties stemming from a hobby of amateur telescope making.

That company achieved impressive growth and after more than two decades of operation it was sold to Bausch & Lomb in the late sixties.

PFG Precision Optics was launched almost a decade later when husband and wife, Don and Janet Green, daughter of Fred Ferson, established the company together with John Plummer, founder of Plummer Precision Optics in Pennsburg, Penn.
