The ME Division (Cicor Microelectronics) has reported two new large orders with a total volume of EUR 5.4 million. The first agreement deals with a follow-up order for the production of highly specialised hybrids for position sensor systems. Production here includes manufacturing of the circuit boards, the complex micro-assembly of position sensors and magnetic field sensors and also testing. The second order deals with a framework agreement for the production of complete microelectronic modules in 2012 and 2013.
The Asia Division has significantly increased the production volumes from its existing cooperation with a leading manufacturer of top-of-the-range electronic products in the lifestyle and beauty sector. The increase in volume confirms the promising market potential of the product in the coming years. The order includes the complete box building phase, from procurement of the components through the tool-shop (production of plastic tools and injection moulds) right up to assembly of the circuit boards, testing and certification of the end product.
These large orders play a contribution in achieving the annual goal of an organic growth of between 7% and 9%.
