Laser Reproductions Celebrates 30 Years This September

This September marks the 30th anniversary of Bordner & Associates / Laser Reproductions. Bordner & Associates was founded by Jerry Bordner on September 1, 1982. Jerry received his first check in November of ’82, for the amount of $650. The original business had been a manufacturer’s rep firm mainly focused on the profiles extrusion industry.  In 1993, an SLA machine was purchased and Jerry’s business began to enter the rapid prototyping industry in a major way. Laser Reproductions was formed as a dba of Bordner & Associates to handle the rapid prototyping side of the business.

Fast forward to today where Laser Reproductions averages $4.9 million in revenue per year. The manufacturing rep portion of Laser accounts for 20% of revenue while the 3D printing business accounts for 80%. The business has been transformed over time and setup for future growth in a relatively young industry.

During the past 30 years, Laser has prevailed through economic hardship, the transition of leadership from first generation to second, and the 2011 loss of their DotCom sales/marketing customer which accounted for 45% of Laser revenue. Yet these trials and tribulations have given Laser a sense of confidence that they are better for having endured the hardships of the last several years.

Laser Reproductions will be celebrating their 30th Anniversary by hosting a tailgate bash at the Ohio State University vs. University of California football game on September 15th. “This will be a great way to thank all of our employees, clients, vendors, and mentors that have helped us to create a flourishing business throughout the years,” notes Laser’s Vice President, Bret Bordner.

Laser Reproductions would like to thank everyone for their support, encouragement, and loyalty during the past 30 years. Laser is having a great time remembering the past – but they are also focused on improving for the future.
