LAPTR was founded by Kenneth Penn, who worked in a machine shop for 23 years, and wanted to improve the process used for customers to find machine shops and for machine shops to find customers. Other websites do a poor job matching talent to available projects, make designing profiles critical to success or forcing those looking for part manufacturing to wait for quotes from machine shops rather than enabling them to request who they want a quote from. Penn wanted to create a system that would fix those issues. Rather than making the search process about who has the prettiest profile, he wanted to make it searchable by capability and availability.
