BOCA RATON, Fla.—Europa Manufacturing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of SenTech EAS Corporation, recently purchased a new LVD Strippit Lynx Fiber Laser to expand its manufacturing capabilities. Europa, located in Boca Raton, Florida, has been a supplier of precision metal fabrication services to OEMs nationwide for more than 35 years.
“Since our acquisition in June 2017, we have made significant investments in capital equipment, software, engineering, and project management staff to further expand our manufacturing and customer support capability,” said Richard Spagna, president and CEO of Europa Manufacturing, in a press release. “The recent purchase of a new LVD Strippit Lynx Fiber Laser allows us to expand our manufacturing capabilities and serve many other growing markets.”
Spagna stated that the laser is “the size of a three car garage” and is “designed for high-speed production, handling two full sheets of metal up to 5 feet x10 feet.”
David Vanderpol, Europa’s director of national accounts, added that Europa is working to expand its product offerings beyond OEM manufacturing and engineering design services. Company representatives, he said, recently attended or exhibited at several industry events and received “a high level of interest” from existing and prospective customers.
“Our newest tradeshow booth and shipping crate were designed and manufactured in-house,” he said. “They received so much interest from other exhibitors, that we are now considering manufacturing a line of customizable tradeshow booths and crates.”
Europa’s booth design is said to minimize set-up and breakdown time, significantly reduce expensive on-site labor cost, and provide ease of packing and shipping. It has a modular backlit design with multimedia capability that allows for expansion to various sizes and formats. The setup and repacking times are reportedly less than 30 minutes each.
