The spirit of optimism at the beginning of the 1990s led to a veritable wave of new business start-ups in Eastern Europe. The opportunities offered by the free market economy had a tremendous impact on people. In this positive, optimistic environment, also MicroStep was founded in Slovakia in the 1990s by lecturers and employees of the Slovak University of Technology.

Today, MicroStep is a company that is writing a global success story: The manufacturer offers high-end system solutions for all four key cutting technologies in metal processing (plasma, laser, waterjet, oxyfuel) in both 2D and 3D.
