Barry Malseed is the Director of ‘The Vision House’, Port Melbourne, Australia. He originally met TLS over 10 years ago at the IBC show in 2010. The relationship between TLS and Barry grew there on.

Barry was always interested in TLS products and always wanted to see how the TLS rehousing process produced such high-quality products. So, when he had booked a visit to the UK to catch up with some old friends, he decided that this was his chance to come and see the TLS factory.

“Having looked at various rehoused lenses from around the world I wanted to see how Gavin and his team could produce such a high standard.”

TLS provided a full factory and offices tour, where Barry was able to see the lens making process. Barry was especially pleased that he was able to have a walk through the rehousing processing, where he was given the opportunity to meet the rehousing team that had worked on his very own lenses.

"I’m amazed to see just how crafted TLS lenses are!"
