Haas Automation Doubled Output in 2010

CNC machine builder recorded best quarter since 2008

Machine tool builder Haas Automation Inc. reported 2010 production totals that more than doubled over the previous year, with fourth-quarter 2010 revenues that were 118% higher than the first-quarter of the year.

“We closed out 2010 with our best quarter since 2008,” according to Haas general manager Bob Murray, “both for orders and for revenue.”

The California-based builder noted that demand for its products grew steadily throughout the year. “December was our best month since June 2008, with orders up 150% and revenue up 96%, year over year,” Murray said. “We see that trend continuing in 2011.”

He said 60% of Haas machines sold in 2010 were delivered to international markets. Haas sales in Russia increased more than 120%, and sales in India rose 107%, while Chinese sales increased 68% and Latin American sales increased 65%.

“It was good year,” state Murray. “We saw growth in all regions, especially internationally. We’ll continue investing in our growing international markets to ensure that all Haas customers receive the high-quality products and world-class service they deserve.”
