LAICOR (Laitila Corporation),
is a family owned company focused on providing its customers
in the supermarket and retail industries with custom checkout
and store fixture solutions of unparalleled quality and
flexibility. In addition to innovative design and exceptional
craftsmanship, Laicor's "yes we can" philosophy
ensures that customer needs always come first. We are devoted
to meeting and exceeding customer expectations.
Laicor's roots trace back to 1996, when our founder and president,
Antero (Andy) Laitila incorporated a sheet metal shop in Peterborough,
Ontario. Fabricating mostly custom stainless steel components
for various companies, Laicor established a reputation amongst
its clientele for extremely high quality work, combined with
fast turnaround times. In 1999, Laicor entered the checkout market
with its sleek, contemporary styled checkout counters. Since
then, the company has grown steadily increasing
its loyal customer base one satisfied customer at a time.
Prior to founding Laicor, Andy spent 14 years as president
of a large fixture manufacturing company. During his time from 1979 to 1994,
the company grew from a start-up operation, to become one of North America's
largest checkout manufacturers. Concepts Andy implemented that
were pivotal to their success were the effective use of emerging
computer technology, product customization, and the Japanese
perfected philosophy of just-in-time manufacturing.
Although used extensively in modern manufacturing environments,
these concepts were all in their infancy back in the early 80's.
Evolving in stride with the most advanced design methods and
manufacturing technologies remains the utmost priority at Laicor
Laicor’s experience and commitment to innovation, service
and manufacturing excellence make us the ideal resource for your
checkout and store fixture needs.
