Only Two Companies to Achieve Growth in the IPC Industry
According to the financial reports released by global industrial PC suppliers as of May 31, EVOC remains in the rank of the world's top three. In Q1 2009, most IPC companies showed a 20-30% negative growth. As one of the only two companies to achieve growth in the industry, EVOC grew by 11.48%, ranking No. 1 in growth rate.
Despite the impact of the global financial crisis upon the IPC industry, both Kontron and EVOC showed optimistic views on their current situation and future development. CEO of Kontron Ulrich Gehrmann said, “Particularly in times of crisis, cost-effective and high-performance innovative systems such as those developed by Kontron can be worthwhile investments for industry. This is because outsourcing offers benefits, can result in rapid savings in companies' unit costs, and cut working capital, thereby resulting in higher liquidity and equity ratios, which are very important factors in these times.”
The sales revenue of EVOC in the first quarter of 2009 was US$29,870,000, 11.48% up from last year’s US$26,790,000. The two-digit growth rate achieved during the crisis greatly inspires people in the industry. Ms. Amy Pan, Global Sales Director of EVOC Group said, “This achievement can be attributed to the interaction and integration of EVOC’s R&D effort and global marketing. EVOC always focuses on product innovation, and fine-tunes its R&D plans and strategy according to the market feedbacks. These two points secure EVOC’s position as the market leader in terms of product R&D and technological innovation. In addition, EVOC’s exploration in overseas market is progressing smoothly, and EVOC has established its name in Europe, North America, Middle East and South-east Asia. Increasing demands for EVOC products from some incremental markets and improvement in market conditions are the positive factors that can explain EVOC’s sales performance.”
