Haas Automation Reports Best Ever Year

Haas Automation Reports Best Ever Year

Added to MTDCNC by HAAS Automation on 08 February 2013

Haas Automation reports that 2012 was the best year in the company’s 30-year history, with revenues up 11.5% over 2011 – and CNC machine tool production exceeding 13,300 units, an increase of 5%.

The 2012 numbers reinforce Haas Automation’s position as the world’s leading CNC machine tool builder.



Sales of Haas CNC machine tools remained strong throughout 2012, with December yielding a near-record 1,512 units sold.

Total sales for the year exceeded 13,000 machines – an increase of 6% over 2011 – and the company shipped a total of 13,324 units worldwide, with more than half going to international markets.
 
“It was an incredible year; our best year ever,” says Bob Murray, General Manager, Haas USA. “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.”
 
All Haas products are built in the company’s 1 million-square-foot manufacturing facility in Southern California. They are distributed worldwide through a global network that strives to provide the industry’s best sales, service, and support. Currently, there are more than 170 Haas Factory Outlets in more than 50 countries worldwide, with more planned for the future.
 
“Our growing HFO network allows us to provide Haas customers around the world with local access to Haas products, sales assistance, replacement parts, and factory-trained service personnel,” Murray says. “This commitment to serving our customers is one of the driving forces behind Haas Automation’s global success.”
 
Nick Remington, Managing Director, Haas UK, commented, “We installed over 500 machines last year, a new record. Market conditions remain tough for manufacturing but confidence is growing. With near on 1000 HAAS machine sales in the past 2 years in the UK alone, HAAS UK now has over 6,500 machines working at over 2,500 locations. Customers recognise the necessity to invest in the latest technology, and I believe they are now, more than ever, viewing the overall package of what a supplier is capable of providing and that is why we are winning more market share.
 
Nick Remington continued, “Every year we invest large sums in our award winning back-up service. Not only do we have 32 strategically located engineers driving Mercedes Vito vans carrying £30,000 worth of common parts each, we are proud to report that we are within a 1.5 hour travel radius of  95% of our customers.”
 
Nick Remington concluded “We will usually fix a problem in one visit, because there are over 430 different common parts on each van and this is a key factor in driving our sales.”
