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.
