November 2011 — Laserod Technologies signs a joint venture agreement with the Shanghai Institute of Laser Technology (SILT) and engages a former SILT scientist now resident in the U.S., Mr. Simon Zhou, to coordinate Laserod projects in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. SILT, which is associated with Shanghai University, began as a research institute in the 1980s, and now serves as a provider of leading edge laser services to the Chinese R&D and commercial markets. The emergence of high tech manufacturing in China, particularly touchscreen technology, has given new impetus to the use of high precision lasers in manufacturing and micromachining.
