Industry expertise meets technical excellence.


In 2014, laser industry veteran and former CEO of Melles Griot, David L. Hardwick, gathered a group of leading photonics entrepreneurs and researchers. Their goal: to break down technological barriers and enable real-world applications of cutting-edge semiconductor laser technology.

As a result, Norlase was founded. The company has since expanded to encompass leading expertise in laser electronics and laser medical applications.

Today, Mr. Hardwick continues to head the company's board as Chairman. Co-founder and serial entrepreneur Oliver Hvidt heads the management team as CEO.
