Founded in 1995, Kvant produces customized laser systems for advertising, art and entertainment purposes. Having built a strong reputation over nearly 25 years, the Slovakian company exports its products to 60 countries, including the United States and Japan.

“Before, there was a misconception about the quality of products coming from Eastern Europe and customers preferred products from Germany. However, Kvant was able to remove this stigma and find success by producing high-quality products,” CEO and co-founder Pavol Kubosek said.

Committed to maintaining the quality of its products, Kvant incorporates components made in Japan and the U.S. to design the highly tailored laser light solutions demanded by its diverse clientele — from small dance club owners to producers of high-budget shows.

Kvant also recently moved into its new headquarters in the capital Bratislava in a space that allows it to double production capacity.

“With 130 employees, we want to continue growing the company, while maintaining the quality of our products. We want to prepare new products that will be very innovative and competitive,” said Kubosek, a physicist by profession.

Having developed a diverse range of products, Kvant has been in the laser show production business for over 15 years. Since then, it has won several prestigious awards from the International Laser Display Association for its laser displays, 3D video and laser mapping, holographic fireworks and water shows.

Among the objectives of the company founders is to introduce science and physics in an interactive and entertaining way. In line with this vision, Kvant is planning to open the world’s first museum of light in the Czech Republic in 2019.

“We are very happy with our experience with Japanese components. We’d be open to collaborate with Japanese companies for special development of new products and cooperate with them for the museum,” said Kubosek.
