ROCHESTER, N.Y.

Six15 Technologies announced today that due to demands for their products and solutions, has increased their workforce by 25% in the second quarter. The three-year-old company has become the world’s leader in non-consumer wearable optical displays and see’s no signs of interest tapering off anytime in the foreseeable future. “Our focus has always been simple,” said Rich Ryan, CEO at Six15 Technologies, adding “we’ve always seen the need for high end wearable hardware and advanced optics to facilitate evolving requirements for more than some of the light duty wearable’s on the market. It’s worked well for us and our partners to date, with much more coming in the future, hence our need for more talent.”

Marketplace Impact

Six15 Technologies is a trusted leader in the head mounted display (HMD) industrial and defense space — twice the nearest competitor — in a market projected to reach $173 billion in 2020. While the company’s security business has prospered, there are more opportunities ahead. “Our core competency is designing, manufacturing and implementing advanced see-through displays,” said Jim Donnelly, VP of Business Development at Six15 Technologies. He continued, “as hands-free and heads-up displays and customized solutions to increase efficiency continue their rollout in companies, municipalities, state agencies and others worldwide, we have to ramp up to care for these growing demands. It’s a good, no great ‘problem’ to have.”
