Today, Lumentum is proud to celebrate its fifth year as an independent public company. Thank you to everyone who helped us reach this milestone, especially our incredible team of hard-working employees and loyal customers.
The past five years have been a period of tremendous growth for Lumentum. We’ve gone from having eight sites, 1500 employees, and $815 million in annual revenue in our FY15, to more than doubling each of those numbers today.
From Lumentum’s first award as an independent company—the 2015 Excellence in Emerging Technology award from Cisco—to our recent win in Lightwave Online’s 2020 Lightwave Innovation Reviews, Lumentum has continually strived to stay on the forefront of industry trends and technology needs to be indispensable to our customers and markets. We are excited to see where Lumentum’s relentless innovation will lead us next.
In addition to our commitment to making leading-edge, high-quality products, Lumentum has equally emphasized corporate social responsibility as a cornerstone of its business strategy. We’ve recently joined the Responsible Business Alliance, encouraged participation in community outreach, and remained firm in our efforts to promote safe, inclusive workplaces free from discrimination and harassment. We encourage our employees to engage and make meaningful contributions to society and our local communities. Our Ottawa office received a Leadership in Corporate Volunteerism Award in 2019 and was recognized as one of National Capital Region’s Top Employers from 2017 to 2020. Our company vision—releasing the power of light to create a brighter future—encapsulates the mindset we seek to live by both inside and outside Lumentum.
Thank you again to all those who have supported Lumentum since 2015—and congratulations for playing a part in getting us to this exciting milestone!
