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.
We are proud to report that as of today, Pacific Lasertec has well-surpassed the unit volumes of the legacy Melles Griot business -- having captured a considerable amount of additional / new market share from our global competitors.
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.
