Pioneering the Laser Industry

It all began in 1964 when our founder, Joseph d'Entremont, set foot in the laser industry in New England. His early contributions were nothing short of groundbreaking, as he harnessed the power of terawatt and gigawatt range space rays for various applications, including the precision drilling of holes. In 1965, he delved into technical operations, immersing himself in the world of lasers and optical wavefront physics. Armed with a potent 250-megawatt ruby system, he embarked on the analysis of picosecond back-scattered light, setting the stage for pioneering advancements in laser technology.

A Remarkable Legacy

In 1969, Joseph's entrepreneurial spirit led him to establish New England Laser, a venture that would later transform into the esteemed National Aperture, Inc. In a generous move in 1975, he passed the torch to trusted partners, marking the beginning of a new chapter. The year 1981 marked the birth of a small laser company, founded by Joe in his own garage. He named it Lenox Laser in homage to its place of origin, infusing the enterprise with the resourceful innovation he had learned from his father. In 1988, he relocated the company from Massachusetts to Maryland, and by 1990, Lenox Laser had found its current home in Glen Arm, Maryland. Throughout four decades, Joe's unwavering dedication, faith, and the enduring values instilled by his father became the nurturing force behind his company.

Today, Lenox Laser has evolved into a globally renowned company, delivering its products not only to businesses around the world but also to components gracing the surfaces of space satellites, journeying through our solar system. This period of Joe's life, marked by resourcefulness and innovation, was deeply ingrained in him during his formative years working alongside his father, Charlie d'Entremont.

Lessons from Charlie

Charlie, a man of action, managed a scrap metal and recycling business, imparting the invaluable lesson that an item's worth is often subjective. Joe honed his skills in electronics and television repair during this time, sparking his interest in electro-optical and laser applications. His pursuit of knowledge led him to optical courses at Northeastern University and diverse experiences in various companies. This journey saw him master optical radar systems, semiconductor devices, and YAG and ruby laser systems.
