Lazer 3D cuts custom products for international customers from Leigh’s base
A LASER CUTTING company that sells products to international customers is working with local businesses to counter the cost of living crisis.
Lazer 3D, based in Elizabeth House on Bold Street, just down Bradshawgate, is a modern manufacturing company that creates bespoke high-end PC and gaming cases.
Created and orchestrated by the “one man team” of Kevin Dolan, the highly crafted products are often sold to European and global customers looking to enhance the look of their digital software.
However, while there may be a busy solo schedule, Kevin said it has been difficult to sustain the business as sales have plummeted during the cost of living crisis.
Kevin said: “I’m a one man team but that’s mainly because I can’t afford to hire anyone else.
“Some of the products can be niche, so when people have less disposable income or worry about paying bills, it has a massive impact on the business and my sales have really dropped.”
In order to find a creative way to get other sources of income, Kevin worked in collaboration with other local creatives at Leigh Works; a collective of start-ups that occupy space at Elizabeth House.
This has included a number of niche products and upcoming ‘Made in Leigh’ designs, which celebrate the city in miniature accessories and accessories.
This collaboration has been a breath of fresh air, Kevin said, as bills continue to rise as winter approaches.
He added, “It was good to collaborate with the other start-ups, because it gave me the opportunity to pivot and open up other sources of income.
“Made in Leigh is a new brand that we work to design products to boost sales and the city’s image, and celebrate local designers and manufacturers.”
This celebration of local businesses and local produce is something Kevin hopes the town can push forward as the harsh winter months and Leigh’s proposed regeneration loom on the horizon.
