“I was fortunate enough to have the resources to engineer a few solutions that people liked and were beneficial for their business. I’ve always said the company exists for the benefit of the people, meaning not only our customers, but also our employees, many of whom have been with the company for more than 10 years. I wanted a place where hardworking Americans could have a good career and support their families.”
– Dan Louis, CEO and Owner
The first product developed by Louis for the company was the SL-24 Laser Square, which allowed installers to execute perfect 90° or 45° tile layouts. A few years later, he introduced the GS-28 and GS-40 Saw Laser later that mounted on bridge saws and CNC equipment to create a visible laser guideline for precise cuts. In 2004, he introduced the industry’s first laser templator, the LT-55 and further enhanced this system and launched the LT-2D3D Laser Templator in 2013.
Our laser systems have received multiple awards. including the 2017 Visionary Award and Sequoia Award for Product Innovation at AWFS. as well as at TISE (The International Surface Event) for Best Product of 2015 and Best Technology in 2019. LPI has also earned a spot on the Inc. 5000 Company “Fastest Growing Private Companies in America” in 2017 and 2018, and as one of the top 10 fastest-growing private manufacturers in Illinois.
We employ a full-time staff of eight people, solely for the purpose of building, calibrating, servicing and supporting our lasers. With that being said, it is a combined total of just over 49 years of experience building and supporting lasers and laser templating systems.
What does “Made in the USA with US and imported parts” mean?
Laser Products Industries products are designed, engineered, machined, and assembled in the Romeoville, IL. With the exception of a couple components, all are of U.S. origin. However, in order to offer the highest quality of products, we are required to source some of these components from foreign countries. Therefore, according to the Federal Trade Commission, simply stating “Made in the USA” may be misleading to consumers.
Although we strive for our products to be comprised of 100% U.S. components, some are simply not made by any U.S. companies which forces us to look elsewhere. We perform rigorous testing on these components to ensure their quality meets our internal quality assurance specifications.
