Trotec Laser Acquires Assets of Engravers Network
Trotec Laser has acquired the assets of Engravers Network, a laser distributor based in Arlington, Texas. The acquisition gives the laser manufacturer opportunities to extend its market reach and broaden the services and support for new and existing customers.
Established in the U.S. in 2002, Trotec has grown to almost 20 times its original size during the past decade. Trotec offers a complete range of support — including industry-leading laser systems, an extensive line of laser and engraving materials, and expert support and resources.
In addition to distributing lasers and mechanical marking and engraving systems, Engravers Network also provides accessories and supplies, training, technical support, and used laser and engraving equipment. Since the business’ inception in 1985, Engravers Network has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to customer relationships by offering a broad range of solutions and support.
“We are thrilled about this partnership and the benefits it will provide to customers,” says Warren Knipple, president at Trotec Laser. “Engravers Network brings valuable experience and knowledge to the table that will broaden our resources so we can provide our customers with the highest quality products, and the best technical, operational, and applications support.”
Knipple says the two companies share a common vision. “Our mission at Trotec has always been to help our customers become more profitable,” he explains. “Our approach includes offering a complete spectrum of products, services, and support to the laser user community.
“Joining forces with Trotec allows us to add new capabilities and resources that will enhance the service and support we provide to our customers,” says Robert Hensley, president and founder of Engravers Network. “We are looking forward to seeing how this will help them grow their businesses and create opportunities for our customers.”
