The laser manufacturer SPI Lasers, a member of the Trumpf Group, acquired the company JK Lasers with effect from April 15, 2015. With almost a hundred employees and annual sales of 17.6 million euros, JK Lasers is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-power fiber lasers for industrial use.
JK Lasers, until now a member of the GSI Group, has more than forty years of experience in laser development. The company’s core competence is in fiber lasers with outputs from hundred watts to four kilowatts, as well as combiners for joining laser sources and other beam guidance components.
The most important target groups include machine manufacturers for laser cutting applications and for additive manufacturing.
JK Lasers is based in Rugby, UK, only a few hours drive away from the headquarters of SPI Lasers in Southampton. Rugby will act as an additional production and development center for fiber lasers and optical components. (Source: Trumpf)
