Picosun Register Record Sales for Its Sunale ALD Reactor Systems
(Nanowerk News) Following roaring success at AVS ALD 2008, the 8th International Conference on Atomic Layer Deposition held in Bruges, Belgium in early July, Picosun Oy, the Finnish Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) reactor manufacturer reports record sales for its SUNALE™ ALD reactor systems. “In the course of one single week in July we closed four new deals for our ALD systems, a record week sales achievement for the company so far,” says Juhana Kostamo, Managing Director of Picosun.
“All the sales were for new clients,” Kostamo says. Picosun’s record sales include three crown jewel corporate customers from Asia and Europe, and one leading university from Asia.
“I have often said that our strategy of building a firm foundation on first class products and first tier customers telling others of the quality of the Picosun Package is going to be a formula for unprecedented success. I am happy to say that we are now seeing this prediction take physical form,” Mr. Kostamo says.
“At this point we are unfortunately unable to reveal the names of our new clients. When their SUNALE™ reactor systems have been installed and approved for use, we can revisit this topic,” Juhana Kostamo promises.
