PCB improves strongly in March 2010

Post:2011.07.25 Hits:1927

 Compared to March 2009, turnover had increased by 43.5%. If we look at the quarterly figures: in 1Q/2010 sales were up 29% when compared to 1Q/2009. It has thus reached the levels of 2008 again.

 
February already saw a very strong oerder intake, which was still topped in March - up by 19%. This figure can be compared to 2000 and represents and increase of 25% over the average of the last decade. The first quarter closed with an increase of 113% compared to 1Q/2009.
 
Many companies are utilising capacities really well. As a result of capacity and personnel adjustments during 2009, delivery times have already increased significantly. Additonal to that, for the 3Q/2010 - main production time for many PCB companies - a shortage of materials (especially laminates) put further pressure on operations.
