As others have said, the coincidence of a couple companies led to the buildup of a local cadre of trained instrument makers. Like attracts like, so soon other instrument makers will move to such an area. I'm a scientist, and there's a similar situation in Vineland, New Jersey; most of the major scientific glassware manufacturers are located there because some German glassblowers moved there in the last century.
