Established in 1991 by Managing Director Tom Walls, LPE ( Laser Prototypes Europe) is the longest-established Rapid Prototyping & Additive Manufacturing bureau in the UK and Ireland.

When LPE was first founded our goal was simply to ensure we offered our customers fast, reliable plastic prototype parts. However over the last 30 years the company has evolved and we have leveraged our technical experience in a way which means that our goal is now to offer our customers effective solutions in both plastics and metals to all their prototyping and low volume production needs.

Over the decades our continual investment in the very latest technologies and materials has meant that the company has been able to expand whilst still remaining true to our aim of being a leading additive manufacturing company, providing our customers with the highest quality models in the widest range of materials.

At LPE, we value our customer relationships and are dedicated to offering fast, efficient prototyping and rapid manufacturing solutions across a wide range of industry sectors. All our customers receive rapid quote turnaround, a dedicated project team and ongoing support and advice from a designated sales contact.
