Laser Process Ltd
Upper Keys, Keys Park
Laser Process Ltd opened its doors at the beginning of 1990. The original staff had all migrated from Laser 2000 Ltd, Brownhills.
This is the original flyer sent out to prospective customers. The pictures show Dave Lindsey the MD of Laser Process and the original sales rep, the late Bill Wharton. Bill was one of the first sales reps in the UK selling a laser cutting service. He was quite concerned in the early days because it was difficult to get prospective customers to accept that laser cutting was a service for the sheetmetal industry rather than some hi-tech service not compatible with their requirements. He gradually made them see the light (pun intended) and became a well respected and well liked face of the company.
Dave Lindsey first became involved with laser cutting in 1981, and Bill shortly after. At that time the number of laser jobshops in the UK could be counted on one hand. Now it seems that there is one on every corner!
Simon Murphy, Laser Process production manager, also got involved in laser cutting in the 80's and, together with the fact that very few employees of Laser Process have moved on, that gives us more combined experience than almost any other laser cutting company in the country.
