Selling lasers is a good business – the makers, hackers and small biz making it happen
One of the folks who works at EPILOG told us… “We had a record-setting number of laser sales in the month of June, 2010 – the highest we’ve had in our company history. Part of our success is due to the tremendous amount of support we get from the industry and that certainly includes both MAKE and Adafruit”.
Epilog Laser, the leading designer and manufacturer of CO2 and fiber laser engraving and cutting systems, today announced record-setting laser sales in the month of June, 2010. In addition to being the highest-selling month in the company’s history, June also capped off a record-setting first half year for Epilog.
“We’re very excited to see such growth in system sales”, said Mike Dean, director of sales and marketing at Epilog Laser. “A few years ago, we recognized that to maintain our dominant position in the lower-power, small-format laser industry, we would need to broaden our product line and diversify our markets. That decision has been paramount to our strategic growth.”
One of the reasons we continue to point folks to EPILOG is their involvement & investment in the DIY community – from Maker Faire to working directly with many small businesses, they’ve been a great company to watch grow as the maker movement has grown along side them. Congrats EPILOG!
