Quantel, with a rich history in the laser business dating back to 1970, has been experiencing strong growth across multiple product lines and markets.  The Quantel USA subsidiary, focusing on the design and manufacture of compact, rugged pulsed YAG products has led much of this growth with their products integrated into tools for semiconductor and display manufacturing, as well as instruments for LIBS, Laser Ablation and PIV. 

Quantel USA also manages the North American activity of Quantel Medical’s rapidly-growing ophthalmology business.  Earlier this year, Quantel Medical introduced the Easy-Ret, an innovative photo coagulator product based on Quantel’s unique fiber laser technology. 

“I am honored to join Quantel USA during such an exciting time,” said Dr. Patterson.  “I am impressed with the Quantel team and look forward to working alongside them and our customers to help create greater value together.”

Laurent Schneider-Maunoury, General Manager of the Quantel Group, added, “Dr. Patterson’s leadership will supplement our strong US team.  Rapid growth comes with its own set of challenges and Steve’s past success in such an environment will help ensure Quantel’s success.”
