Oxford, MA--High-power fiber laser and amplifier manufacturer IPG Photonics Corporation has appointed Chris Pilcher, an industry veteran with over 25 years in the industrial laser industry, sales manager for Canada. Chris has vast experience selling industrial lasers and systems to OEM's, integrators, and end users, most recently with Trumpf Canada.

"I am very excited to see Chris on-board to lead our efforts in Canada," said Mike Klos, general manager of IPG Photonics - Midwest Operations in Novi, MI. "Chris is a seasoned laser professional who is well known and well liked in the laser industry. Chris is a perfect fit for our IPG team in Canada and will complement our efforts in the automotive and manufacturing sector in the Midwest."

"I am happy to be joining such a forward thinking organization as IPG," said Pilcher, "and I believe that our fiber lasers will continue to offer considerable benefits compared to older laser technologies. Fiber lasers have proven themselves in numerous applications in all industries and because of their reliability, high beam quality, high efficiency, small footprint, and lower total cost of ownership, they will continue to gain acceptance and increase market share. Fiber lasers have already become the tool of choice for many marking, welding, cutting, drilling, and cladding applications and as more companies become aware of their capabilities this will only increase."
