DUBLIN, OH – LSP Technologies (LSPT), which manufactures laser peening systems to enhance metal fatigue life, has added more than 27 engineering and technical support employees over the last two years, doubling in size and spurring the company to seek larger facilities. The new staff include optical, mechanical, and materials science engineers, as well as product design and technical project managers.
“New projects are challenging us to accommodate large components in-house, as well as the larger staff we need to support the work,” says Eric Collet, LSPT’s chief operating officer. The company will relocate to facilities at least twice its current size, he says.
New customers, portable laser peening solutions, and equipment builds for locations in China and Europe have contributed to the growth of LSPT’s staff. Rapid growth at the company followed the introduction of the Procudo laser peening system for in-plant laser peening. The systems are now installed in the U.S., China, and Germany.
