Newly launched has created the ultimate match-making software for machinists and engineers.

Reno, United States – December 19, 2017 —’s system enables engineers and sourcing professionals to find exactly who they need based on the requirement of the part’s manufacturing process. In less than 5 minutes you can select manufacturers based on:

• and their availability for your delivery date.

A system with this level of detail and control has never been available to sourcing professionals and engineers before. This site can save hours, maybe days on finding suitable manufacturers.

It also works to make machinists lives easier as well. matches the order with the machine shops able to work with the required material, machining process, size, quantity, difficulty and has the required certifications. No more looking through job boards at projects that don’t match the shop’s capabilities. See only the work that is perfect fit.

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. Kenneth 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. is a simple, online marketplace that matches engineers and sourcing professionals to machinists and manufactures for easy and efficient contract manufacturing. enables engineers to:
