Haas Automation Revenue topped the $1bn mark in 2014, best year ever for US machine tool maker
United States - Haas Automation's annual revenues exceeded $1bn for the first time in company history in 2014, an increase of more than 11% over 2013 – making it the best year ever for one of America’s leading machine tool builders, the company said.
According to Haas, more than 14,000 units were built and shipped worldwide in last year, a 22% increase over the previous year. About 53% of Haas machines were reportedly shipped overseas.
Sales of machine tools were strong throughout the year, with records set in the third and fourth quarters, Haas added. September was the second-best sales month due partly to a successful IMTS and October yielded records for production and sales, with over 1,400 machines built and revenue exceeding $100m.
“It was an incredible year,” Haas General Manager Bob Murray said, “our best year ever. And we owe a lot to our international customers. We will continue investing in our growing international markets to ensure that all Haas customers receive the high-quality products and world-class service they deserve.”
