The history of "BALTIC OPTICAL DIMENSION" (BOD) is closely linked to the philosophy and development of the BOD Group, which began in the autumn of 1998, when Garsų studija was founded in Vilnius. After half a year, the first "Baltic Optical Disc" factory of industrially recorded CDs in the Baltics was opened.
The BOD Group is the largest producer of CD, DVD, and Blu-ray Disc CDs in the Baltic States, and one of the most advanced groups of companies in Central and Eastern Europe. The annual capacity of BOD Group plants in Vilnius (UAB BRD) and Tallinn (AS Baltic Disc) is more than 70 million CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray Disc CDs. 85% of production is exported to nearly 40 European and Scandinavian countries.
Since autumn 2013, the BOD Group has engaged in a new business – the production of solar cells and solar modules. In spring 2014, it launched the most modern production line of solar modules (BIPV) integrated in buildings. The factory in Vilnius can annually generate production capacity for 80 MW of solar cells and modules.
At the beginning of 2015, yet another business was launched – the manufacture of the latest generation of progressive optical eyeglass lenses. In spring 2014, the production company UAB BRD of the BOD Group signed a contract with one of the largest German manufacturers of optical devices, Schneider GmbH & Co. Kg, for the supply of the latest generation of equipment. In the beginning of 2015, near Vilnius, in Trakai district, Guopstai village, the company opened a new Free Form RX progressive spectacle lens manufacturing laboratory "Baltic Optical Dimension" (BOD). The new laboratory will be one of the largest and most modern in Europe. Its production capacity is 4000 progressive lenses daily. The company will produce single focal and bifocal lenses.
