Trumpf has completed the name change and merger of its wholly owned subsidiary SPI Lasers into the Trumpf Group and under the Trumpf brand.
Effective November 28, 2020, SPI Lasers UK Ltd. based in Southampton, UK, will now operate under the name Trumpf Laser UK Ltd. SPI USA and SPI Korea have been merged with the local companies Trumpf USA and Trumpf Korea, respectively, effective November 1 and December 1. Trumpf merged the SPI subsidiary in China with Trumpf China in April 2020.
As of July 1, 2020, products from the former SPI Lasers are available through Trumpf’s distribution channels. In the course of the change of name and the merger, the former SPI Lasers now works even more closely with its subsidiary Trumpf Laser-und Systemtechnik GmbH, which is also a wholly owned subsidiary.
The two companies are now pooling their competence and expertise in laser technology worldwide to create synergies and improve customer service for industrial applications in both disk laser and fiber laser technology.
SPI Lasers UK Ltd. has been a wholly owned subsidiary of the Trumpf Group since 2008 and has quickly established itself within the Group as an expert in the development and manufacture of fiber lasers. In order to always be able to offer its industrial customers the best possible beam source with the best possible service, depending on their requirements and applications, Trumpf has now also completely integrated fiber lasers into its worldwide sales and service channels.
