Rofin-Sinar Technologies has acquired Lasag, a developer and manufacturer of industrial solid-state lasers, from the Swatch Group.
Lasag markets and sells its laser products for fine cutting, spot welding, drilling and scribing applications to the medical device, automotive, electronic and aerospace industries. In addition, the company has special expertise in high-precision drilling and laser processing heads. Headquartered in Thun, Switzerland, the company has approximately 80 employees worldwide and maintains offices in the US, Japan, Germany and Italy. The Lasag locations in Thun, Switzerland, and Chicago, IL, USA, will be maintained.
'This is an important acquisition for Rofin-Sinar, as we continue to extend our broad product portfolio and to expand our worldwide customer base,' said Günther Braun, CEO and president of RSTI. 'Lasag's products will round off our laser source and system offering for micro processing and we are confident that the talents and skills of the Lasag team will contribute to the future success of our group, and will further strengthen our position in the laser market for material processing.'
