Privately held manufacturing software provider, Eyelit said that it had won 5 new solar customers in 2009, which helped to see the company post record revenue for the fourth quarter of 2009. Eyelit doe not report financial figure results. The software specialist said that a roll-to-roll thin film, CIGS solar manufacturer became a customer in the fourth quarter, making it 5 new customers from the PV industry in 2009. The others in the sector included a UMG-silicon producer, a concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) manufacturer, a mono- and multi-crystalline silicon wafer producer and a silicon cell manufacturer.
“We finished the fourth quarter even better than we had expected,” commented Dan Estrada, Vice-President of Sales and Business Development. “We are seeing contributions from multiple industries, led by solar and semiconductor. We expect growth again in 2010, and we are well positioned to support and sustain the expected increase in demand through our recent and continued staff recruitment.
Eyelit also noted that it added new customers in Belgium, Brazil, and France in 2009 and operates 5 continents. Eyelit is also expanding its relationship with its German partner SYSTEMA beyond Europe to meet growing demand.
“With a record high in new MES customer wins in 2009, we expect that our established customers will contribute much more to our future growth,” added Estrada “As the semiconductor industry recovers, we look forward to more legacy semiconductor MES migrations to Eyelit MES. We are seeing more interest from companies using FACTORYworks, PROMIS, and Workstream MES solutions looking to modernize and lower the total cost of ownership of their factory software.”
