Our programmers having sleepless fun
Exhibition team 2015
Our mission is to keep improving and making the best lasers with the best people and for those who want to produce the very best shows.
So it begins
It all started with a small business making laser teaching aids. Little did we know what would happen when two high-capacity brains joined forces to establish a new company – KVANT.
The show starts
This was when we started to get into laser shows. And people loved our shows so much that we were invited to perform our first big show abroad. Big thing! Our lasers at that time were also a big thing. So big and heavy, in fact, that it took almost 2 hours to load on a plane. Sorry for the delay, folks.
As the industry moved forward, so did we. It’s a bit mind-boggling now to look back and see that in 2000, a single 150 mW Kvant laser cost about 10 000,- €. Today, that’s quite enough to fully equip a moderately large dance club.
Kingdom for a laser
A certain Martin Gabco sold his apartment to buy a KVANT laser. True story. We can’t judge the profitability of such an investment, but the fact is that to this day Martin is our revered show developer. Thanks Martin!
Two important milestones: we were awarded ISO 9001:2008 and became a member of the International Laser Display Association (ILDA).
That year we also developed CUBOX - probably the first DMX controller for laser display systems that could play shows from SD card. Back then its profile was embedded even in MA lighting consoles.
Law and order
A major event in the life of KVANT! Dušan Navara joined and has been a member of the Dream Team ever since. And with him came law and order. Well, more like law – the order took couple more years to arrive.
Mr Viktor joins our fast growing team and the quality of our laser modules improves enormously. Very quickly KVANT laser modules became supreme in their class.
Can we make it better?
In the on-going drive for better quality, we established a CNC workshop to oversee every detail to and to craft top-notch products.
2011 - 2012
We released eLite - our very first KVANT Pure Diode laser. Result? Our first (of many) ILDA award. We were also a finalist in the Ernst&Young “Entrepreneur of the Year” award, and claimed our place among the most successful companies in our country.
This year was one proof after another, which showed that our approach was the right one. To pick just a few highlights, we were awarded the Slovak Gold quality certificate, our lasers passed TÜV laser security tests, and we became “Innovative Company of the Year” in the competition “Diamonds of Slovak Business” organized by Forbes and Enterprise Investors.
With all the pieces in place, we picked up the pace. Now we sell our products by the thousands instead of hundreds as in previous years. Awards also keep coming and we won our already 18th ILDA award in Dubai.
2016 and forward
After all those years, we still love what we do. And, never being ones to settle, our next goal is clear: to keep improving and making the best products. Promise.
In the past three years, we moved forward big time, and together with our friends from Pangolin, we see things going better and brighter!
We moved into a new building, three times the size of the old one, and besides modernisation of all departments and the product range, we also manufactured our first 300 Watt Architect sky laser.
Our lasers have been developed, tested and perfected during 20 years of use in shows big and small and in every scenario you can think of. So we can proudly stand behind our products and say: They work. They really, really work. And they make shows that stand out, are remembered and get people talking.
If that’s what you were looking for, look no further.
