In 2006, Ron Hannah decided his company needed to begin transitioning to completely digital fabrication . Knowing the first step is creating digital templates, he started with his first of many Laser Templators from LPI.

“We decided to go digital because we were buying a CNC router. The Laser Templator has helped to take our shop from manual to completely digital and all of our kitchens fit perfectly.” Said Ron Hannah, president, Cadenza Granite & Marble. “Our installers can do three kitchens a day instead of one to one-and-a-half because everything fits. We don’t have to cut sheetrock anymore.”

“We were awarded the National Fabricator of the Year award. The Laser Templator was a major contributing factor in winning that award. We looked at every product on the market before buying this. The ease of use, affordability, and customer service has been absolutely amazing. If you are considering digital technology in your templating department, you need to get the Laser Templator.”

Established in 2001, Victor DeOliveira, president, made two major business decisions that have made Discover Marble & Granite such a solid player in the industry. The first was a large investment in quartz from Cambria in 2003 which gave them the flexibility to adapt to design and color trends. The second was to go high tech with the purchase of two sawjets and a Laser Templator from LPI.

Today, the company is processing over 5,000 sq ft per week, has three locations, 10 Laser Templators, 10 full-time templators and 19 installation crews.

“We invested right before the recession,” said DeOliveira. “It allowed us to cut our costs and compete against those low-priced fabricators out there. It’s one of those things that if we had not done it, I don’t know where we would’ve been. It allowed us to cut costs that much.”

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

Laser Products Industries (LPI) has introduced a new series of training videos for its popular LT-2D3D Laser Templator. 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.”
