About Us

Orion Photonics was formed to provide support for organisations where the technology of thin films plays a strategic role.

It was created by John Allen & Isabella Allen the directors of AJ Thin Films, a thin film design and process development company and Phil Mingay the director of Wordentec Ltd, a manufacturer of precision optical coating systems. Both companies have a long pedigree in all aspects of vacuum coating systems and optical thin films and the formation of Orion Photonics provides an unrivalled synergy and strategic alliance.


Wordentec is a global supplier of instruments and systems to the high vacuum and thin film coatings industry. Using the company’s extensive vacuum engineering experience, Wordentec provides innovative solutions to vacuum engineering challenges.
