14 May 2002 TeleVue acquires Vixen distribution for U.S.A. and Canada.

    TeleVue Optics, Inc. announced the formation of a new division "Vixen North America". The wholly owned subsidiary of TeleVue will be the exclusive distributor of Vixen (of Japan) astronomical telescopes and accessories for Canada and the United States.

    Vixen North America will operate from TeleVue's new headquarters in Chester, N.Y. with its own staff headed by Bill Copeland, Sales Manager. Mr. Copeland has broad sales experience including having managed a retail telescope store in Minnesota. When TeleVue learned Mr. Copeland was planning a return move to the East Coast, TeleVue invited him to join the TeleVue company.

    TeleVue has hired Mr. Peter Carboni to work on areas including web site development, literature, and other projects for both TeleVue and Vixen North America. A current Vixen product brochure is now available, although TeleVue has yet to announce pricing and availability details.
