Trotec is a leading international provider of laser systems for a wide range of applications, from laser cutting and engraving to industrial marking. The company’s extensive line of quality laser engravers, cutters and markers, coupled with its unmatched service and support offerings, have made Trotec one of the industry’s leaders. 

In 2015 the Upper Austrian laser manufacturer reported record earnings of more than 100 million euros. The positive annual results showed growth of 42% over the previous year. The exceptional growth was attributed to three areas: a solid increase in core markets, significant advancement in new product development, and an acquisition for laminate production in the US. Two thirds of the sales increase resulted purely from organic growth.

The sales in Germany and the US were particularly strong in 2015; and the future expectations in these markets continue to look very positive. While mid-term growth is mainly expected in the Asian market. Trotec has more than 450 employees and production sites in Austria, Germany and the USA. To better support the growing Asian market, a plant in China is currently under construction. 

With 16 sales subsidiaries strategically located around the globe, 70% of the Trotec team members are employed in locations outside Austria. Trotec's export share is 97%, and the growth trend continues steadily with an average growth rate of 24% over the past 15 years. The entry into new product areas such as in-house production of engraved materials through the acquisition of Innovative Laminations Company in 2015 and the development of the large format business, ensure the company's continued growth. Trotec has already set new goals now that the company has reached the 100 million euro revenue goal set in 2008. As the first and most valuable point of contact for all laser users worldwide, the company will continue to pursue a path of growth and future success.

Trotec has six showrooms and laser demonstration facilities across Australia and New Zealand supported by over 35 staff locally. For further information, please visit: www.troteclaser.com
