IDS shows strong growth in the USA
Well positioned in VISION year
For 2020 the camera manufacturers from Southern Germany are again aiming for double-digit growth. This is based on the positive order situation, with a 16% increase over the previous year, and the strong development of the foreign business. Delivery of the 1.5 millionth camera is expected in the second quarter.
Overall, the foreign presence at almost all locations was further strengthened by new hires in the areas of sales and machine vision consulting. The relocation of the subsidiaries in the USA, Japan, UK and Korea to larger premises reflects these developments and paves the way for further growth.
The growth forecast for the VISION year 2020 is based primarily on the new IDS NXT cameras with artificial intelligence and the high demand in the 3D segment. New products will complement the IDS product range especially in these areas. The IDS NXT ocean all-in-one solution has already been on the market for a short time and promises the user AI-based image processing without specialist knowledge.
"We continue to grow, develop innovative products and therefore remain a reliable and powerful partner for the future," explains managing director Daniel Seiler. "Thanks to high investments in our infrastructure in 2019, we are ideally positioned for the increased order intake and a further increase in demand".
The new Innovation and Technology Center "b39" will be ready for occupancy in the course of the second half of the year. In addition to IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH, the main user of the 4,500 sqm complex, in which jobs for 200 employees will be created, will be the sister company IDS Innovation GmbH, which will operate the "b39 Academy", specialising in the teaching of digital professional, methodological and technical skills.
