TRUMPF Laser- und Systemtechnik GmbH (Ditzingen, Germany) and SPI Lasers UK Ltd. (Southampton, England), both wholly owned subsidiaries of the TRUMPF Group, will combine business operations to bring advantages in industrial applications via disk and fiber technology to enhance customer service offerings. SPI Lasers products are now available via the TRUMPF sales channels.

With fiber lasers becoming important laser sources for material processing, both companies agree that joining forces and integrating SPI Lasers into TRUMPF is a sensible move and, more importantly, one that will be extremely beneficial for its customers.
