 Press Releases

  • Since its founding in 1969, the tool and machine manufacturer FOBA Laser Marking + Engraving (Alltec GmbH) has developed from a craft shop for mold making into one of the leading international providers of system solutions for laser marking. The anniversary year offers the opportunity to review the company's history as well as to look into the future of the internationally positioned company.

    Selmsdorf, July 2019 – FOBA was founded in September 1969 in Lüdenscheid/Germany as a "mold making and engraving company" with 15 employees. Starting with mechanical engraving, FOBA has continued to develop the labeling of industrial products and components as a core business ever since. The basis for FOBA's expertise in the development of complex control systems was the production of hot runner control units and other electronic components. The first laser system developed by FOBA was launched in 1991 as a Nd: YAG marking laser.

    Focusing solely on laser technology since 2001, FOBA has become one of the internationally leading providers of marking lasers with almost 250 employees worldwide. Its history is characterized by innovation and change despite its tradition. Continuous technical advancement of the laser systems, multiple relocation of the company sites as well as succeeding shareholders characterize FOBA until today.

    In 2009, the Lübeck-based manufacturer of laser marking machines ALLTEC acquired the laser engraving specialist FOBA in Lüdenscheid. Two companies that focus on marking and engraving with lasers also took legal action in common – now within the framework of the ALLTEC GmbH.

    The FOBA brand was also continued after the company consolidation and strengthened in 2011 by renewing and sharpening its brand image. Since 2014, the sole headquarters and production and development site lie in Selmsdorf near Lübeck. International service and sales are managed by the company headquarters and offices in the United States (Chicago) and China (Shanghai).

    The international focus and growth of the company is further supported by FOBA's affiliation with the US Danaher Group. As part of the group’s Product Identification Platform, FOBA strives for innovative solutions for direct parts marking with lasers under the motto "bring products to life by harnessing laser technology".

    FOBA’s main field of industrial activity is in the area of ​​sustainable marking of automotive components and medical technology products.
