On April 30, 2008, TRUMPF celebrated the grand opening of the Laser Innovation & Technical Excellence (LITE) Building, where more than 400 people participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony attended by Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell, Lieutenant Governor Michael Fedele, company officials, representatives of national, state and local government, as well as many customers and employees.

This high-tech facility will add 86,000 square feet to the existing TRUMPF Inc. campus. The building will feature a new 55,200 square foot production hall and a 6,000 square foot, class 10,000 cleanroom designed for the manufacturing and testing of CO2 and solid-state laser resonators. A laser research lab and laser development department will be dedicated to the creation of innovative laser products.

The building will also house the company's laser marking application and sales group and give the information technologies department a larger area for a state-of-the-art server room. Approximately 120 employees will staff the new facility.

"This new building means much more than just more space," said Rolf Biekert, president and CEO of TRUMPF Inc. "It is a concrete example of our long-term commitment to the community, the region, the market, and of course to our employees. The new building means new products, new markets, new jobs, and new opportunities for all of us."
