Performance. These are Kruger Optical's core values, and we
strive to incorporate them into all the products we offer.
We believe today's optics consumer is looking for an
alternative to the products now dominating the market. Look in
the optics section of your local sporting goods store. You'll
notice that most products fall into two categories:
traditional brands you pay a lot for (though they often rely
on decades-old technology), and cheaper products whose quality
matches their prices.
At Kruger, we believe many customers are looking for something
different. For those customers, we are creating products
containing innovations to improve performance, as well as
affordable products that don't sacrifice quality. We are
betting there are customers out there who are willing to try a
new brand offering better performance for the price.
Since its inception in 1998, Kruger (formerly Pacific Rim
Optical) has grown from a component supplier into an
engineering-based company focused on new product development.
Headquartered in Tigard, Oregon, Kruger now supplies
riflescopes, binoculars, spotting scopes, optical components,
subassemblies and other products to various markets.
With a combined 150 years of engineering experience, we focus
on engineering value into our products. Our work is evident in
the product lines of our many private label customers, as well
as in our Kruger® branded products. In addition, we are still
an excellent source of lenses, molded optics, subassemblies
and other components through our Kruger Components division.
All Kruger branded products are engineered and tested in our
Oregon engineering lab, which is equipped to test all aspects
of our products. Equipment includes optical interferometers,
collimators and impact testers.
The Kruger brand includes high-end, made-in-the-USA products
such as the Dual Tactical Sight® (DTS®), which is manufactured
in the company's Oregon facility (from U.S. and imported
components). Other products, such as the K4, are Crafted in
the USA (engineered and assembled in Oregon from high-quality
imported components). The Oregon site includes a 10k clean
room, manufacturing area and a full machine shop.
Other products and components are manufactured in Kruger's ISO
9001 and ISO 9002 certified partner factories in Asia. These
factories are world leaders in optics manufacturing, producing
difficult, European-style optics at value prices. Our QA and
communications office in Shanghai, China, help assure that all
orders are completed according to plan.
Kruger's professional-grade riflescopes, spotters and
binoculars contain high-end features that are normally seen in
much higher-priced products: color corrected APO objectives,
fully broadband AR coated optics, hydrophobic and scratch
resistant lens coatings, high performance ranging reticles,
and much more.
TacDriver™ by Kruger, recently dubbed outstanding "optics for
the working man" by Shotgun News Magazine, was designed to
offer excellent performance in an affordable scope.
Tired of using the same old optics? It just may be time to
give Kruger's U.S.-engineered optics a try.
