Kern Lasers History
Kern Electronics & Lasers, Inc. was established in 1982 by Gerald Kern, with the main objective to design and manufacture top quality industrial laser cutting and laser engraving machines to meet demanding production schedules.
With the company headquarters located in the beautiful lakes country of Minnesota, the facility consists of a modern 20,000 sq. ft. building with 25 full time employees. Our vision is to build laser systems that will fit the customer's needs, at an affordable price, with the versatility to suit a variety of industries.
Kern Electronics & Lasers, Inc. started by supplying a motion system for the existing computerized rotary engraving machines. As the sealed CO2 lasers became commercially available, Kern incorporated its motion package with the laser developing a complete turnkey laser cutting and engraving solution.
Today, Kern Electronics & Lasers is proudly owned and operated by the first and second generations of the Kern family. Our goal moving forward is to constantly improve our products, improve processing times and continue to offer our customers the best customer service in the laser industry.
