Paul Taylor

CEO and Founder

Paul graduated from Oxford in 1993, receiving his Bachelors and PhD in physics. His PhD thesis was developing an optical atomic clock at the National Physical Laboratory, where he was responsible for developing the laser systems used to trap and probe a single atom of Ytterbium to act as the time reference in the next generation of atomic clocks.

Following his PhD and a stint as a research scientist, he ventured into industry, working in developing and building laser mastering equipment for the CD/DVD industry. In 2005 he was recruited by Spectrum Technologies to develop their range of laser cable marking systems for aerospace, which is where he was first exposed to the cable market and the technique of laser stripping.

Laser Wire Solutions was founded to exploit the gap in the market for high-end laser stripping systems for medical device manufacture. Paul’s intentions were to design and manufacture bespoke machines that could be used to strip hair-fine wires and aerospace cables used in a range of technologically advanced products, such as microwave assemblies, pacemaker coils, medical devices and mobile phones.
