Big Sky Laser now Quantel (USA) - It's official!

Big Sky announced this week that they are officially changing their name to Quantel (USA). We often get asked by customers about the difference/relationship between Quantel and Big Sky and it used to be very confusing, so hopefully the change will simplify matters.

A little history: Quantel purchased Big Sky back in 1998 and Big Sky has been a 100% subsidiary of Quantel since then. At that time, the decision was made to keep the Big Sky name which was well known throughout the laser community. We were lucky as we were the UK representative for both Quantel and Big Sky, so it was an easy transition for us!

Hopefully now that there is only a single company name it will end any confusion.
