THREE GENERATIONS SERVING INDUSTRY
Laser North Incorporated’s roots go back to the Detroit Michigan area in the 1940’s where a young Leo Niemela attended Henry Ford Trade School, and began learning the tool and die trade. In the 1950’s, he opened his own shop, Stainless Dies by Niemela. In the 1960’s he returned to his roots in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, moving his business and evolving along the way. His son Mark joined the team in the 70’s, and business resumed under the name of Northern Tool & Engineering, Inc., doing tool & die work, and also steel and aluminum fabrications.
In 2005, realizing that a major change was necessary to modernize and remain competitive, Northern Tool & Engineering/DBA Laser North purchased their first new 4000 watt automated laser. This opened new doors. The following few years saw more changes that fueled growth and progress. In 2010, Mark’s son, Karl, joined the team with fresh energy and innovative ideas. Laser North’s customer base broadened as OEM’s and distant companies learned to trust and rely on the stable and rapid turnaround.
Laser North Family
As business grew, the need for a larger facility became apparent. The procurement of another 58,000 sq. ft. building across the street and additional laser equipment was necessary. This expansion took place in 2014, at which time the Northern Tool & Engineering name was formally replaced with the current corporate brand. Since that time, Laser North has expanded it's geographical footprint with the addition of a 24,000 sq. ft. operational facility in Hayti, South Dakota, which started production in 2018. Today, with a total of over 100,000 sq. ft., modern equipment, and a skilled and motivated team that rises to meet a challenge, Laser North is your state-of-the-art laser cutting, machining, and fabrication center.
We invite you to join our growing number of satisfied customers, and pledge to you our energy, honesty, and personal service.
