From startup to well renowned company.
The 28 year old Bakschik Martirosian started his business BMTEC six years ago from his small bedroom. Today it's a renowned company with 14 employees, more than 700 customers, 4 Trotec laser systems and a premises of 1200m2.
Once upon a time...
Bakschik Martirosian (founder and owner of BMTEC) studied Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. "During my studies and internship I discovered how beautiful production processes and -systems are. I wanted to do something with that. The small bedroom was transformed into an office space. Soon my one-man business expanded and I had to look for a premises. At BMTEC we are experts in laser cutting, but also in giving engineering advice. With unprecedented enthusiasm we support our customers to get more out of laser cutting plastics - every step they take gives us a big energy boost", thus Bakschik Martirosian.
Various Trotec laser systems
For more thans seven years BMTEC is a specialist in semi-finished products for customer groups in mechanical engineering, yacht- and ship building, the automotive-, medical and energy industry. Renowned names like Honeywell, Shell, Siemens, Campina are customers of BMTEC. It didn't take too much time before the machinery had to expand with two more Trotec laser systems. Nowadays BMTEC is working with a laser engraving system (Speedy 300) and two laser cutting machines (SP1500 and SP2000).
The advantages of Trotec Laser
''For us it's very important the laser system produces constant quality and clear cutting edges. Also the tolerance and lifetime of the machine is very important when buying a laser system. We've decided to buy Trotec laser systems not only for the high quality of the machine, but also for their service. I should be able to trust my supplier; with Trotec I found quality, service and trust.", thus Bakschik Martirosian.
Automation is the future
''The plans for the future are full automation. We are already streamlining the entire process and integrating all components with the help of the laser systems, but we would like to go a step further. By automating, we hope to become even faster and better than we already are", thus Bakschik Martirosian.
In addition to BMTEC, Bakschik is also involved in a field lab. The Netherlands has recently got a new field lab, called Technologies Added. A field lab is a practical environment where companies form an environment where Smart Industry solutions are developed, tested and implemented. ''We at BMTEC strive to encourage companies to apply smart technology and digitization and thus create new business opportunities. Our Trotec R500 laser machine is therefore in the field lab. In this way I hope to give young, motivated people and companies a push in the right direction. I firmly believe that such a laser system can contribute to success, just as it did to me", thus Bakschik Martirosian.
