For the Sidney Daily News

SIDNEY — Business for 2015 started off very strong for LaserFab Technologies and remained that way most of the year.

“Markets ranging from heavy truck to RV started off great and grew rapidly as the year went on,” said Nichole Ellis, LaserFab general manager. “As 2015 came to a close, a small dip in the heavy truck market began surfacing. LaserFab had a great strategic plan for 2015 and that allowed expansion into new, growing markets. This planning permitted LaserFab to have continued growth despite the small dip the market took. We are pleased to announce another great sales and business year!”

With new investment plans in mind and 5S becoming a stronger focus of 2015, changes to the layout of the production floor took place. Process flow was a big driver in the way the company started in 2015 to how it ended in 2015. 2016 will focus on 5S even more, as a leader in our organization, Tim Suttles, has implemented new procedures and made this a large part of his focus on better process improvement. We look forward to welcoming members of the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce Lean Council in to view our progress later this year.

The second quarter of 2015, a robotic weld cell was implemented into our capabilities. Part of LaserFab’s goals has always been, and will continue to be, staying up to date with the latest technology, as well as providing the best quality, customer relations, and competitive prices. What better way to maintain those goals than to enter the world of robotics. This investment not only allowed for us to continue maintaining goals and current customers but also allowed for us to continue expanding into new market segments and opportunities.

Additional capabilities incorporated and operating In 2015 include spot welding and a robotic brake press.

We look forward to announcing new investments of technology for 2016.

Third quarter of 2015,LaserFab’s management, marketing, and sales team decided it was time to revamp the website, which should be complete by the end of February 2016, and will give our current customer base and potential new customer base the look behind our new road to success. Part of that journey is an exciting new aftermarket business segment. Additional details to be provided late in the 2016 year.

LaserFab Technologies strives to be the best supplier that we can be while creating, building, and maintaining relationships and partnerships. We want our services to not only meet but exceed the expectations of the customers. We as a company do not want to just supply quality parts but be the answer to the solution from beginning to end. Finally, we want to be that one stop shop that is just in time, every time.

The management team here at LaserFab Technologies, Inc. wants to thank our customers, vendors, and internal team members for making 2015 another great year, as well as providing success for years to come.
