Despatch Industries has finished 2010 with total sales figures of US$200 million – the best year-end results in the company’s 108-year history. Despatch’s Solar Business Group was responsible for the lion’s share of this number after capitalising on the increasing demand for cell-processing equipment in Asia.
“We had an exceptional year with all key areas of our business growing significantly. This record performance was highlighted by the rapid growth of the China solar market,” said Despatch’s CEO, Patrick Peyton. “We have aggressively increased our internal capacity to meet customer demand and we are expanding our local and international employee base in order to capitalize on future opportunities.”
