LASEA, the Liège-based specialist in precision laser solutions for industry, has received a €10million investment from private equity fund M80, with the support of Noshaq and SRIW.
With offices in Belgium, France, Switzerland, and the USA, LASEA develops and produces extremely precise laser micromachining machines and solutions for global industries. Its top clients across five continents are leading brands or disruptors in the luxury goods industry, the MedTech industry, Big Tech & electronics, and research institutes. With LASEA’s machines and solutions, clients can revolutionize their own production processes and offerings.
LASEA has seen continuous impressive growth, doubling revenues every couple of years. The company invests heavily in research and development with a portfolio of over 100 laser technology patents.
The capital injection from M80 will drive international expansion and investment opportunities. It will boost innovation in areas such as new optical components, machines, and software. And it will enable further integration of the recently acquired Optec (BE). M80 becomes the second largest investor and will be an active partner in LASEA’s further development. LASEA’s founder, Axel Kupisiewicz, remains the largest shareholder and will continue to steer the organisation as its CEO.
Both Noshaq and SRIW – together with the Épimède fund early backers of LASEA – have expressed their continued support by increasing their shareholdership, maintaining LASEA’s ties to Liège and the Walloon region.
