It’s our Birthday! We’re 19!


Birthday MOS

The team at MOS had more than one excuse to gorge on chocolate this weekend with the arrival of our 19th Birthday!

Microscope Optical Services was set up in 2002 from a small front room in the Midlands, we’ve now grown to a team of 6, servicing microscopes all over the UK from our premises in Warwickshire.

In case 2002 doesn’t seem that long ago – that was the year that Sony Ericsson released the first ever camera phone to go on sale in the UK. It could store a whopping 14, full resolution photos! Mars Bars cost just 29p and The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter; Chamber of Secrets were among the number one hits at the box office. In addition, one of our current team members was just 4 years old when MOS came in to being.

Jane and Lewis

As a company we’re proud of what we’ve achieved over our 19 years. We’ve been fortunate enough to work with some incredible customers such as Lucion Environmental, Socotec Asbestos and University of Warwick. In addition, we’ve supported dozens of local and national causes. We’ve developed strong and long-standing relationships with excellent suppliers, such as Meiji Techno who year after year, help us to deliver great products and service to our customers.

If you’re one of our valued suppliers, customers, causes or just a friend of the business, we’d like to thank you. People like you keep the company running and keep us doing what we do best.

Stay tuned – next years’ a big one. Hopefully, we’ll be able to throw an ‘in-person’ birthday bash!
