Our history

The genesis of Lion Lasers

laseratelier

Robert van Teeffelen speaking:

In the year 2000 I graduated with a specialization in industrial laser techniques. After a time of developing and designing experimental systems at the Technical University in Eindhoven I started a company in laser engraving in our garage.

The first step was a Nd:YAG laser especially for high quality engravings in metal and plastics. We sold systems of a German manufacturer to our customers in the Netherlands, but the focus was on the engraving on behalf of customers. From the “studio” in our garden (sometimes with the whole family) we engraved thousands of parts, lighters, pens, cups and other objects.
In 2006 we bought our first real business building: a huge space on two floors in a business building on the Gijzenveld in Breda.

When I was with many Chinese people at the University of Eindhoven I got the idea to start importing laser system from China. Together with a Chinese colleague I traveled to China to see if we could find reasonable quality products.
In 2007 we imported the first laser systems from China. These were sold very quickly.
At the time we were the only supplier of Chinese laser systems which were offered with professional installation, training and maintenance. Beside that, all systems were first reworked by us in such a way that they meet the EU requirements.

Yet this was not the quality we had in mind. We were looking for a compromise between Chinese prices and German quality. At the same time the company grew bigger and bigger.

The end of 2009 we expanded with a second company building. With more space to develop our own laser systems. The result: three new laser systems made in Breda. The LionIndex, the LionFiber and the LionMatch especially for marking (engraving) of larger production quantities.
A year later, the first Dutch engraving system saw the light. The BabyLion was born. A compact, all-round laser system for the hobbyist and the professional. Meant as ‘standard’ machine with the widest possibilities. At the same time, the final touches to the LionJeans were made. Specially developed for applying beautiful designs on denim, fleece and leather.

The company got more and more professional customers in this phase. Larger companies with more production volumes. Our position as the only company in The Netherlands that develops custom industrial laser systems created a demand for more and more customized solutions. Such as the ‘Egg Marker’. This growth resulted in another space problem. At first we rented 2 unit’s from a neighbor, but in 2014 we found a new home for Lion Lasers at the Nikkelstraat in Breda.

With the lay-out of the building we could better organize our work. Chinese machines are now gone from the product range, but we still hold on to concepts with the lowest possible price. With clever designs we can put high Dutch quality machines in the market with less labor. With pride we can say we make “Dutch Laser Systems”. Laser systems made in the Netherlands.

My vision for hiring staff has always been that motivation and enjoyment of your job come in first place. I prefer to change the job description for someone rather then seeing someone unhappy in their job. I am proud to have a great team of people that develops fantastic products in a pleasant atmosphere. People who know how to surprise customers with just that little bit extra. Always looking for a challenge, striving to make a new product or to test a new market demand. As we continue to improve ourselves.
