Southampton, Hampshire, England - Fiber laser maker SPI Lasers has appointed Dr. Thomas Fehn as the company's new CEO. Fehn most recently was executive VP of Jenoptik AG, andalso served in a number of senior positions with LINOS Photonics from 1998 to 2005.
The news comes in the wake of the recent acquisition of JK Lasers by SPI Lasers, which has been seen by many as a major commitment by its parent company TRUMPF to the continued development of its fiber laser business. The acquisition has seen SPI Lasers grow its product portfolio to include a number of high-power continuous-wave (CW) lasers and systems.
SPI Lasers will be launching new products in their CW high- and medium-powered product ranges at the upcoming LASER World of Photonics exhibition, to take place June 22-25, 2015, in Munich, Germany. With the increased level of investment in R&D from the TRUMPF group, the future has never looked more promising for SPI Lasers and its customers.
