Established 1996, American Laser Enterprises LLC is based in Brighton, Michigan.  American Laser Enterprises designs and manufactures industrial laser beam delivery components. The modular and intuitive design provides our customers with precise turnkey solutions for the industrial laser marketplace.

In September of 2006, American Laser Enterprises completed its successful merger with American Laser Spares, a leading supplier of OEM and OEM quality laser consumables. The combining of the two companies resulted in a larger and stronger organization that is better positioned to serve the needs of its customers, succeed in a dynamic marketplace with innovation, and to achieve its business objectives. In 2010, the company purchased Laser sensorics and cable manufacturing technologies.

The firm operates with ERP software. It employs Zemax optical design, Solidworks 3D cad design, and analysis and product data management software to maximize operations while keeping the flexibility to meet ALE’s individual customer needs.

American Laser Enterprises has over 35 years of laser industry experience and services clients throughout the United States and Canada with representation in numerous countries abroad.
