Strong rise in order entries
ISRA VISION AG: Dynamic order income in North America
With this strong volume of order entries and an order backlog of more than 36 million Euros (PY: approx. 35 million Euros), ISRA continues its growth course and confirms the forecasts for the current financial year. Currently, ISRA expects that the tragic events in Japan will only have a negligent effect on the overall business. ISRA is currently represented in Japan selectively only on a business level in the glass and metal markets. A dependency on the Japanese market does not exist due to the relatively small share of total revenues in the low single-digit range.
The financial year 2010/2011 is a year in which ISRA wants to take important steps in the direction of 100+ with expansions in the industry and product portfolio. For this purpose, the company forces the innovation and marketing offensive it has started. It is planned to introduce more than 25 new products and applications to the market in the next two years.
Simultaneously, ISRA will use directed investments in international sales, in the expansion of the technical teams in addition to research and development to advance the concentrated growth strategy. For the financial year 2010/2011 (October 1, 2010 - September 30, 2011), the company plans double-digit growth in revenues of more than 70 million Euros with improved margins.
