Our Commitment to Ethics

LightMachinery Inc operates in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and honors its commitments, both contractual and implied.  In addition, we follow the following ethical principles.

We conduct our business honestly and professionally, and expect our clients and suppliers to do the same.  We do not accept gifts and will not engage in bribery.  

We respect confidential information exchanged between our staff, customers, and suppliers and expect the same from them.  

We honor and value the abilities and contributions of others, embracing the responsibility and accountability for our actions in this regard.

We strive to be fair and objective in our actions, and we are never influenced in our decisions by issues of gender, race, creed, color, age, or personal disability.


The founders of LightMachinery have worked together for almost their entire careers. Many of the people at LightMachinery started out at Lumonics in Kanata, Ontario designing and manufacturing high power CO2 and excimer laser systems. Another group of our team comes from a company originally known as Interoptics, founded by Jeff Wimperis, one of the founders of LightMachinery. Interoptics was later purchased by Lumonics and renamed WavePrecision. WavePrecision was a renowned optical components manufacturer that was a key supplier to GSI Lumonics and JDS Uniphase as well as a key contributor to scientific and aerospace projects. In 2009 LightMachinery acquired the pulsed gas laser product lines of GSI Lumonics.  LightMachinery's new facility provides an excellent infrastructure that allows our team to focus on innovative process development. Our in-house designed business management system was acclaimed by our ISO auditors as the "the best system they had ever seen" and became the template for a revolutionary cloud computing system called OfficeBooks.
