Pacific Lasertec traces its roots to 1979, when Melles Griot formed a laser manufacturing facility in San Marcos, California. The company's robust designs and vertically integrated manufacturing delivered the highest performance HeNe lasers in the world, resulting in a global market share in excess of 70%.
While solid-state technology began displacing some demand for gas lasers in the 1990's, a very solid and profitable business has remained for this technology, due to its extremely narrow spectral line-width, long operating lifetime, outstanding beam quality and high-value price points.
Pacific Lasertec - a New Beginning . . .
Melles Griot shifted away from its component-level laser manufacturing, which led a core group of former employees to acquire the associated assets in 2018. This highly experienced and completely focused group of individuals has not only recaptured the vast majority of legacy Melles Griot HeNe laser business, but has won considerable market share from the competition.
We look forward to continuing the tradition that began in 1979, with outstanding quality, reliability and performance - at high-value price points. Completely dedicated and focused on this product technology, our technical expertise and service levels are unmatched by any competitor - guaranteed.
