BERGISCH GLADBACH, Germany, January 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- The specialists for surface metrology remain on course for growth
"Highly satisfied" - is the conclusion at Fries Research & Technology (FRT), the specialists for multisensor surface metrology and wafer metrology. "2011 was a record year for us", according to the managing director, Dr. Thomas Fries. The consistent product and marketing strategy is bearing more and more fruit: order intake and sales have exceeded the previous year's figures.
The impetuses of growth are internationality and automation
2011 was - once again - a record year for FRT. For the third year in a row, after 2009 and 2010, the highest annual order intake was recorded. Sales also soared to a new record value for the second time to more than 45 per cent. With this rapid growth, FRT has succeeded in obtaining a very good annual result. Two factors were essentially responsible for the happy development. The highest growth rates are recorded on an international basis. In the product portfolio, the automatic production control sector achieved the greatest increase.
"Our consistent product and sales strategy is paying off; I am eagerly looking forward to 2012", is Dr. Thomas Fries' optimistic view of the future and quite justifiably too.
