Laser Photonics & Echelon 1 Solutions Team Up To Deliver Laser Power to Defense Agencies

Laser Photonics Corporation (LPC) (NASDAQ: LASE), a leading global developer of industrial laser systems for laser cleaning and other material processing applications, and Echelon 1 Solutions (E1S), a storage and logistics solutions provider for the military, have formed a partnership to bring laser cleaning and cutting technology to the defense industry.

E1S is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) based in Tampa, Fla., which aims to fill a critical gap in DOD operations. Namely, E1S aids in the integration and execution of military project requirements, alignment with funding and using efficient procurement vehicles.

Through this collaboration, LPC and E1S will provide definitive solutions for professionals in defense and maritime industries who are looking for viable and safe methods of surface cleaning, rust removal, corrosion control and other laser-based industrial applications, including cutting, marking, engraving and welding. Fonon Technologies, a sister company of LPC that services government agencies and contractors, will market and promote joint capabilities and technologies.

“LPC’s leading-edge laser ablation technologies help to resolve the numerous health, safety, environmental, and regulatory issues associated with traditional methods of surface processing,” said Wayne Tupuola, CEO of Laser Photonics. “We are eager to capitalize on the ways our joint expertise with E1S can revolutionize how Defense Department MRO, drydock and other operations are performed while helping professionals address safety challenges and labor shortage concerns in situations where turnaround is critical.”

E1S CEO Chuck Neu added: “Laser cleaning and other material processing technologies are highly time- and labor-efficient, significantly optimizing maintenance and repair. With the shared value of supporting American Military Forces, we look forward to collaborating with Fonon Technologies.”
