2017 has generated a 50% growth for Altix Group which is the record ever.
The sales turnover was 10 million Euros in 2016 and jumped to 15 million last year.
China is leading with almost 50% of the sales, followed by North America and Europe. Other Asian countries, such as India, Korea and Taiwan represent more than 10%.
Altix is recognized for both contact printers and Direct Imaging systems for different markets segments. In 2017, 25% of the sales were dedicated to the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) market, 35% to the Flexible Printed Circuit Board (FPC) and 40% to Photo Chemical Machining/Metal Etching (PCM) and Photovoltaic/Solar (PV) markets.
Most of the equipment delivered in 2017 were contact printers with a large Roll to Roll proportion. But the Direct Imaging machine sales have never been at such high level.
Altix is looking ahead for another significant growth for 2018.
