About Us

Thomas Paquin Founder of laser specialists Incorporated in 1986, Laser Specialists Inc. was positioned at the forefront of laser cutting technology. Its founder, Thomas J. Paquin, was a pioneer in the laser cutting industry and is credited with introducing the first five-axis Mazak laser system to the Metro Detroit area in 1989. Mr. Paquin’s unexpected death in 1993 significantly reduced the momentum of this young company in the years following his absence.

As of January 2004, LSI’s leadership was assumed by Mr. Paquin’s sons, who bring with them a code of trust, integrity, ethics and hard work to carry out their father’s vision of growth and success.
Our 24,000 square foot manufacturing center in Fraser, Michigan, is equipped with a variety of laser cutting systems that can process the most complex parts rapidly and within specified tolerances. LSI is comprised of a highly skilled team who hold quality and precision in the highest regard. We take pride in our ability to offer the best option for customers needing flat and multi-axis laser cutting services. With over two decades of experience in the industry, our staff endeavors to foster positive working relationships with each customer by providing timely services and quality products under a value pricing structure.
