Speedline Technologies Reports Highest Bookings Since 2000; Backlog Up 68% Over Previous Quarter -- New Product Introductions and Process Expertise Support Surge

Speedline Technologies, Inc., today reported that its bookings during the second quarter of 2005 rose 44% over the first quarter and in July reached their highest level since 2000. At the end of July, the backlog had climbed 68% versus the end of the first quarter.

FRANKLIN, MA (PRWEB) August 24, 2021 -- Speedline Technologies, Inc., today reported that its bookings during the second quarter of 2005 rose 44% over the first quarter and in July reached their highest level since 2000. At the end of July, the backlog had climbed 68% versus the end of the first quarter.

“We’ve witnessed a major upturn in business since April as large customers increased capital equipment spending to respond to growth in the consumer electronics and automotive industries,” said Pierre de Villemejane, president and chief executive officer (CEO), Speedline Technologies. “The market has enthusiastically responded to the introductions of our new MPM AccelaTM printer and Camalot XyflexPro® + dispenser with strong order rates.”

In addition, de Villemejane said the trend toward lead-free manufacturing drove healthy global demand for new capital equipment. “Our process expertise in lead-free technology helped support higher bookings for our wave soldering and reflow oven products,” he said.

On a geographic basis, Speedline’s CEO said European bookings surged at the end of the second quarter, after a slow first half. Hungary, Turkey, and Russia remain bright spots as investment continues in those countries’ electronics manufacturing sectors. Germany also showed continuing strength.

“The Americas have been strong since the first quarter, with Brazil making a major rebound and Mexico improving,” he said. “Asia was sluggish in the first quarter, but bookings were strong throughout the second quarter with China leading the way.”

Speedline’s CEO credited the market’s strong acceptance of the Accela printer and XyflexPro+ dispenser to the company’s leadership in process and applications knowledge.

“The Accela printer already has been accepted on Approved Vendor Lists at many worldwide OEMs and contract manufacturers,” de Villemejane said. “We shipped the first Accela systems in the second quarter and are booking new orders at significant levels. We’re also seeing brisk initial order rates for the XyflexPro+ dispenser. These two products will have a substantial impact on results through the remainder of the year,” he said.

De Villemejane reported that Electrovert wave soldering sales were bolstered by winning major competitive evaluations. “We secured preferred supplier status for these products at many of the top global electronic manufacturing services (EMS) providers,” he said.

The company said sales also were strengthened by the results of a marketing agreement with Tamura FA that introduced Speedline’s popular AccuFlexTM printer into the Japanese market.

Speedline’s CEO predicted Speedline’s strong performance will continue through the end of the year. “We will see seasonal strength in the third quarter when bookings tend to peak,” he said. “But with the lead-free manufacturing trend expanding, and our exciting stream of new products entering the market, we anticipate robust performance through the end of the year.”
