LaserCraft opens

LaserCraft opens its doors, as founder and CEO Rodney Greene takes delivery of his first laser. Originally a one-man operation, Greene’s work quickly draws praise, and he purchases an additional laser and hires a second employee.


The company grows

Initially an investor in the company, Jody Greene joins LaserCraft as CFO. His financial and human resources responsibilities allow Rodney to focus on marketing and production.


On the move

LaserCraft’s success allows it to outgrow its 3,000-square-foot facility in Lilburn, Georgia, whereupon it moves to Gainesville and a 30,000-square-foot facility. The company adds forming and welding to its growing list of services and adds another laser. It now includes 40 employees.


More equipment, More employees

LaserCraft moves again, this time to a 119,000 square foot facility in Gainesville. The company also purchases Hi-Tech Fabrication and N&S Machine, allowing them to expand fabrication capabilities to machining. Its workforce now stands at 120.


Expanding services

Continuing its growth, LaserCraft adds MIG and TIG welding cells as well as Robotic Welding. A new climate-controlled assembly department also accommodates kitting and hardware installation, as well as testing of customer product.


New certifications

LaserCraft earns ISO 9001:2008 certification. It has since been recertified under the new ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System. The company also adds Process Improvement, Engineering, and Customer Service staff in its continued growth.


LaserCraft, an essential service

Thanks to its vast manufacturing expertise, LaserCraft is deemed an essential manufacturer to the medical, and power transmission industries. As a result, the company remained open and fully operational during the COVID-19 pandemic – exemplifying its commitment to customer service.


Remaining on the Cutting Edge

LaserCraft continued to lead the industry by adding cutting edge Visual CMM technology and Laser Welding to its already vast product offerings.
