May 1, 1980
In 1980 a laser positioning company was formed from the needs of interior contractors to properly locate and install metal track & ceiling grid. Midwest Laser was created as an arm of Reinke Interior Supply Co., becoming a Spectra Precision dealer handling all laser positioning for the Chicago area construction market. Midwest Laser quickly became the go-to company for leading construction technology and expanded our territory to include Indiana. For the next 21 years we made it our goal to create relationships through our solutions, service & support. In 2000 Trimble Navigation acquired Spectra Precision and our relationships in the Chicago area led to us becoming Trimble’s Illinois and NW Indiana Survey & Construction Dealer. We named this dealership Precision Midwest.
