SPI Lasers is one of the world’s leading Fiber Laser designers and manufacturers, and one of the few to operate on a truly global basis. Our mission is to provide our customers with the very best quality products and after sales service.
With over 350 employees serving customers in more than 150 countries, we aspire to become the best global manufacturer of Fiber Lasers as measured by our stakeholders, customers and employees.
We have strong positions in North America and Europe including research and development, and manufacturing in the United Kingdom. In addition, we have growing positions in Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Latin America.
Founded in 1999 SPI Lasers (or Southampton Photonics Institute as it was originally known) was a spin-out from Southampton Universities Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), quickly establishing itself as a global leader in the design and manufacture of industrial fiber lasers.
Having acquired JK Lasers in 2015 the two companies combined experience of providing effective Laser solutions stretches over more than 50 years. We are expert at providing our customers with the manufacturing and service solutions they are looking for.
Since 2008 we have been wholly owned by the TRUMPF Group, a German high-tech company focusing on the provision of Machine Tools and Laser Technology/Electronics.
All our Lasers are designed and manufactured in one of our two UK based manufacturing sites in Southampton and Rugby. We employ the very best engineers and technicians, as well as advanced lean manufacturing techniques and processes to develop and build our products. We are committed to harnessing the very best British engineering and innovation excellence; ensuring the highest levels of product quality are achieved.
In addition we are focused on maintaining as much in-house manufacturing as possible, from the production of our own Fiber and Beam Delivery Optics through to the manufacture of our mode strippers and beam combiners; whatever the product, they all comply with the highest technical and manufacturing standards.
Regardless of your industry or needs, we are equipped to assess your challenges and help you find a practical Laser based solution, ‘Made by SPI’.
