Wadena, Minnesota-based Kern Laser Systems will be welcoming in 2018 in its newly expanded facility.
The company announced in June that it was adding 20,800 square feet onto its existing building, more than doubling the space it previously had for manufacturing and research and development.
In making the initial announcement president Derek Kern said the expansion was necessary not just to keep up with demand for its existing product lines but also to be ready to fulfill orders for the new products the company was rolling out in 2017. These included the FiberCELL, the company’s first-ever fiber laser system.
Kern says the expansion of the manufacturing and R&D departments will be followed at a later date by expansion of its technical support and office buildings.
Kern Laser’s headquarters is located at 1501 Industrial Drive in Wadena.
