Basler Announces 2007 Results: Strong Growth in Sales for Basler Components
Basler AG Posted 03/12/2008
Ahrensburg, 12 March 2008 – Basler Vision Technologies released its 2007 annual report on March 12th. In the 2007 fiscal year – as in previous years – turnover in the Basler Components business unit showed extremely positive development: it increased by 18% to EUR 27.5 million (2006: EUR 23.3 million). The earnings before taxes amounted to EUR 3.0 million (2006: EUR 4.3 million). Incoming orders were at EUR 30.7 million (2006: EUR 24.7 million). Only ten years after its establishment, the business unit generated more than half of the group’s turnover for the first time ever. Hence, the components business remains the most important growth driver within the Basler Group.
As a result of its strong growth in an otherwise stagnant market, Basler Components became the world’s number two supplier in the digital camera solutions market for capital goods manufacturers in 2007. The growth was primarily generated through product launches and continuous expansion of the worldwide sales and support channels. In 2007, Basler introduced numerous new, technically innovative camera models that were very positively received in the marketplace. With a new sales office in Korea, the company created further sales capacity.
Basler also prepared for further growth in the production area. To meet the steadily increasing demand for cameras, Basler optimized camera production in 2007: a state of the art production line was installed, a grey room for camera assembly was established, and numerous processes were restructured.
At the group level, Basler ended the 2007 fiscal year with EUR 51.5 million in turnover (2006: EUR 52.1 million). The group's earnings before taxes amounted to EUR 1.8 million (2006: EUR 4.9 million) and the incoming orders to EUR 56.6 million (2006: EUR 57.5 million).
Basler Components designs and manufactures advanced vision components for industrial users. Products include color and monochrome line scan, area scan, and intelligent area scan digital cameras ideal for high-speed and/or high-resolution applications. Product designs are driven by industry requirements and offer easy interfacing, compact size, and a strong price/performance ratio.
