Laserforce celebrates 25th anniversary with new industry benchmark

Laserforce celebrates 25th anniversary with new industry benchmark
April 4, 2013

Leading laser gaming company Laserforce International is marking 25 years of operating, developing, manufacturing and supplying high-quality laser tag systems to professional laser tag operators.

Since 1987, Brisbane-based owner and founder Len Kelly, has built a solid reputation based on hard work and constant dedication to ongoing research and development. Responsible for the world's longest running Laserforce site in Brisbane, Kelly has shown an unwavering commitment to providing the ultimate laser tag experience.

He explains "to still be in business after twenty-five years has taken perseverance and a great deal of hard work.

"Throughout that time, it has particularly been a pleasure to see laser tag go from something that was brushed off as little more than a passing fad, to now being in the main stream and a must have for many FECs and bowling centers. I feel a sense of accomplishment and think it's a great testament to our hard work that 120 businesses worldwide are now operating with Laserforce equipment."

Over the years, Laserforce products have set the benchmark for standards in the industry in terms of reliability, innovative new features, and quality of the product.

Its latest innovation, Laserforce's Gen 7 released in November 2012, has set new records for the company with its exciting new features, taking the laser tag to a whole new level of entertainment and interaction.

Kelly adds "it's been a joy witnessing technology change and seeing the reliability of the equipment improve.

"It's amazing how far we have come compared to when we first started."

After a very successful quarter of a century as a leader in laser tag, Len has been slowly turning the reigns over to his son, Sam Kelly, who has shown the same commitment to the industry and the company as his father.

Sam Kelly explains "it has been a great experience and has taken a lot of hard work getting heavily involved with Laserforce over the past three years.

"I am passionate about Laserforce because it is my familys business, I take great pride in my work and I want to see the company grow.

"I would love to see laser tag played in every FEC, bowling centre and theme park in the world because I know how much fun it is. It is something I grew up with."
