LAPTR was founded by Kenneth Penn, who worked in a machine shop for 23 years and wanted to improve the process customers and manufactures use to find each other. Other websites gouge machine shops with hefty monthly expenses for access, give lopsided preferential treatment to some, or do a poor job matching capabilities to available projects. 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 so that every business, big or small, could have an equal opportunity at securing machine shop work for bid.
