Hatteland Display's marine computer and panel computer business has experienced a record year of sales in 2007. The company reports a 53% increase on the 2006 sales performance of its computers division having sold 2510 units up to mid November 2007. The company expects a year end figure of 3100 units, making for a total sales growth of approx. 89%.
In order to reduce lead-time and to ensure that future order levels can be met, Hatteland Display recently improved many of its manufacturing processes
at its Nedre Vats, Norway
, development and manufacturing plant
. The company has since October doubled its marine computer capacity, reduced lead-times to 4-5 weeks for standard units and introduced new QA measures to ensure that high levels of quality are retained as production ramps up.
