Laser Products Industries Earns a Place on Inc. 5000 List for Second Consecutive Year

Laser Products Industries (LPI) has made the 2018 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States for the second-consecutive year. LPI has experienced nearly 70% sales growth over the last three years and joins an elite group of repeat companies on the Inc. 5000.

“Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once,” said James Ledbetter, editor in chief of Inc. Media. “A mere one in three have made the list two times.”

According to Ledbetter, companies that have made the list, on average, have grown six-fold since 2014 during a stretch when the economy grew around 11 percent. Collectively, revenue from companies on this year’s list is up 158 percent from 2014, a trend that LPI continues to follow.

“It’s a tremendous honor and achievement for LPI to be named to the Inc. 5000 for the second straight year,” said LPI president Rich Katzmann. “We continue to invest in all aspects of our business to ensure we not only continue providing the best quality of products and services, but also innovate and develop new solutions for new markets and the evolving needs of our customers. We have some big things planned between now and the next few years that are pretty exciting.”

LPI was founded in 1994 by Dan Louis, who was a 2017 inductee into the National Kitchen and Bath Association Hall of Fame. Over its 24 years, LPI has been recognized by customers, peers, and associations worldwide as a leader in laser measuring products for several industries including countertop, cabinet and woodworking. The company has several new products in development that will launch over the next couple years to accompany its popular LT-2D3D Laser Templator.

Laser Products Industries Releases New Series of LT-2D3D Laser Templator Training Videos

Designed to easily educate customers on digital templating with the unit right out of the carton, these concise, yet informative videos are segmented by application from initial setup and templating to editing and emailing job files.

“We want our customers to get acquainted with the unit and be able to do basic templating the day they receive it,” said Kevin Yeh, marketing director and national sales manager for LPI. “We discovered that by breaking out and updating our previous training videos into multiple, succinct clips, people were able to learn how to operate the LT-2D3D and software more effectively and minimize the learning curve.”

Laser Products Announces New Business for Fabricators

Laser Products Announces New Business for Fabricators: Laser Products Industries (LPI) today announced that it has finalized the acquisition of Precision Templates of Colorado and has formed a new separate company, Precision Measuring and Training (PMT), headquartered in Denver, Colorado.

PMT will initially serve the Denver market and will offer digital laser templating, CAD work, training, and tool measuring to fabricators primarily in the stone, millwork, and glass industries. The new company has offered positions to all former Precision Templates of Colorado employees to take advantage their 60 years of combined templating experience.

We only hire highly skilled professionals and put them through rigorous certification to guarantee error-free, on-time, cost-saving work.”

“When Rich and I first talked, I saw the immediate benefit of the PMT business model for fabricators,” said Marc Sleight, vice president, PMT. “The Laser Products system is the only solution we trust that allows us to achieve our promise of accuracy and process customization.  There’s no more down time, no expensive investments, and no more impossible scheduling problems.  PMT is fully flexible and can customize our services to the fabricator’s specific needs regardless of type of job, material, location, or process.  PMT employees are better trained, better with customers, and go where you want, when you want, based on your schedule. It’s a perfect solution.”
