Control Laser History
1965 – 1974
Pioneers of Laser Technology
On April 19, 1965, the inventor of the automobile airbag, Michael Ivashuk, founded a private company in Pompano Beach, Florida incorporated as Ivashuk Manufacturing Company…
In 1968, as the business expanded, Michael merged Ivashuk Manufacturing with the Orlando Research Corp, and renamed the company as Control Laser Corporation.? The next year they went public, and eventually landing on the NASDAQ in 1974.
1974 – 1988
In July 1977, Michael Ivashuk sold his controlling interest of Control Laser Corp to a Washington based logistics company named Security Storage. The founder’s son, Robert Van Roijen Jr., was elected Chairman of Control Laser.
After taking charge of Control Laser, Robert used his ingenuity and knowledge of capital operations to develop the business by acquiring a series of laser companies with proprietary technology.
1988 – 2008
In July 1988, Control Laser’s controlling ownership was been sold to Quantronix Company, thus entering the semiconductor mask repair business. Because of the volatility of the semiconductor market at the end of 1992, Excel Technology acquired Quantronix and Control Laser.
The scope of laser applications, and thus CLC’s customer base, expanded from aerospace, military and semiconductor industries into automobiles, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, tools, molds, jewelry, trophies, packaging and other commercial markets.
2008 – Present
In July 2008, General Scanning Inc. Group, determined to horizontally integrate the laser industry, financed 3.6 billion USD to privatize and acquire Excel Technology.
In November 2012, Control Laser’s equity became fully owned by Han’s Laser group.
