Amtech Systems has said that it has achieved record booking in its FY2008, topping $100 million, compared to 2007’s recorded bookings of $56 million. Approximately 70 percent of total bookings in FY2008 came from the photovoltaics market, according to the company.
“With the $9 million in follow-on solar orders we announced on September 15, we have achieved a very significant milestone in the history of Amtech in surpassing $100 million in total solar and semiconductor orders in fiscal 2008,” noted J.S. Whang, President and Chief Executive Officer. “To put this achievement in perspective, total orders in fiscal 2007 were $56 million, including $21 million of solar orders. This milestone was reached on the strength of our solar products and in spite of a downturn in the semiconductor industry and the recent weakening of the Euro, compared to last quarter. We are very proud of all of the members of our Amtech team who have contributed to this significant achievement.”
