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.
