High-technology company Trumpf announced a close business cooperation between Trumpf Laser- und Systemtechnik GmbH and SPI Lasers UK Ltd., which are both wholly owned subsidiaries of the Trumpf Group. Trumpf Laser will combine the business operations of SPI Lasers to bring advantages in industrial applications via both disk and fiber technology and enhance customer service offerings.

SPI Lasers has been a wholly owned subsidiary of the Trumpf Group since 2008, quickly establishing themselves within the group as experts in the field of fiber laser design and manufacture. With fiber lasers becoming important laser sources for material processing, both companies agree that “joining forces and integrating SPI Lasers into Trumpf is a sensible move for both companies and, more importantly one that will be extremely beneficial for our customers.” This value-enhancing step ensures that SPI customers will benefit not just from high quality fiber laser products but also first-class standards of customer service. In addition, both companies are expecting synergy effects and an improved cost structure, e.g. in R&D.

Headquartered in Southampton, SPI Lasers has been operating since 2000. It sells its products globally, and has its major business operations, including research and development, and manufacturing, in the United Kingdom, with additional sales and customer support locations in Asia and North America.

The relevant steps are expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2020. (Source: Trumpf)
