Unaudited preliminary revenue: RoodMicrotec ends 2018 with double-digit sales growth
  • Revenue growth by 13% to EUR 13.65 million in 2018 compared to 2017
  • Strong increase in sales revenue in Supply Chain Management
  • Automotive sector growth by 12%

Zwolle, 10th January 2019 – RoodMicrotec N.V., the leading independent company for semiconductors supply and quality services, released the unaudited preliminary revenue for 2018 today. The independent general contractor delivers again a strong annual performance with an increase of 13% in sales revenue year-on-year. The revenue shows a strong and steady increase in the Supply Chain Management business unit. The Test Operations business unit continues to run at a good utilization level and in the Qualification & Failure Analysis business unit the order situation is improving.

The increase in revenue by 12% in the automotive market sector also shows that RoodMicrotec is well positioned in one of the fast-growing sectors for the future. The order book at the end of 2018 is higher than the year before and this enables RoodMicrotec to plan the production capacity moving into 2019.

“I am pleased to announce another successful year for RoodMicrotec”, said Martin Sallenhag, CEO of RoodMicrotec. “Our unaudited preliminary revenue for 2018 was strong, despite the softening of the market during the fourth quarter as reported by many market research institutes. It is also very encouraging to see the revenue increase in Supply Chain Management which again shows that the direction of the company is the right one.”
