Trotec Laser celebrates a quarter of a century of company history. The high-tech company looks back with pride on an eventful 25 years and many successes and is, thanks to a clear vision, ideally positioned for the future.
25 years ago, Trotec was founded as a high-tech subsidiary of the renowned stamp manufacturer Trodat in Wels, Upper Austria. Under the leadership of Andreas Penz, the young company with start-up character quickly developed into the technology leader in laser machines for engraving, marking and cutting.
"Our goal is to make our customers' work easier, faster and more profitable. To achieve this, we do our best and continuously set new standards. Our customers should have a decisive advantage through our machines and solutions," explains Andreas Penz, managing director with the company since 1997.
Over the years, Trotec has developed a whole fleet of innovative and powerful laser systems: Stand-alone machines as well as integrated solutions for a wide variety of applications serve, among others, sign makers and engravers, architectural model makers, schools and universities, and large industrial companies with marking and cutting needs. With the introduction of the unique laser software Ruby® in 2021 Trotec revolutionized the laser industry once again.
But customers of the Upper Austrian company can rely on more than just its innovative edge. They have always been able to trust in the best advice and exceptional service. With 17 subsidiaries and 113 sales and service partners in 90 countries around the world, Trotec can live the company's focus on customer proximity with all its advantages.
More than 40,000 systems installed worldwide to date, backed by satisfied customers, prove that the Trotec brand delivers what it promises.
… "This is what drives us and is our commitment every day," explains Andreas Penz and looks confidently into the future. With good reason - the success curve is going steeply uphill. In 2021, the company achieved sales of 154 million euros and employed 741 people worldwide, around 200 of them in Austria.
