Laser marking system maker Laselec celebrates 15-year anniversary

July 1, 2016
Laselec, which offers UV laser marking, will celebrate its 15th anniversary this year (2016).

Laselec (Toulouse, France) first focused on aeronautic industry needs with UV laser marking and then shifted to product diversification and rapid international expansion. After years of experience and successful international development, the company will celebrate its 15th anniversary this year (2016). The company designs and manufactures UV laser wire markers, laser wire strippers, interactive harness assembly boards, harness braiding machines, and laser cleaning solutions for injection molds.

Laselec has opened subsidiaries and offices in the US, Mexico, China, Japan, Morocco, and Italy, and will shortly set up an office in Germany. Being the leader in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East with over 80% of turnover made abroad, the company continues to focus on international growth.

To be recognized in the world of new technologies, only 15 years of development and innovation were required for the company to be trusted by prestigious customers from aerospace and rubber industries, such as Aigle, Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, Freudenberg, and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.

The swift growth of this small-sized business has drawn the attention of larger companiestwo years ago, Komax Group acquired a 20% stake in Laselec. This strategic partnership contributes to the development of new projects, and lays the foundation for Laselec to access new industrial markets such as automotive and railway in supporting its research and development.
