Sales booming as brand grows in popularity
The first quarter of our financial year delivered a surge in sales as our brand presence continues to grow around the globe. As well as a strong period for UK sales orders came from Australia, Croatia and Greece as well as a significant multiple system order from the latest addition to our network; the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
In addition to standard system sales we also made a number of specialised custom machines for applications as diverse as medical device marking to heavy engineering. As I write this update the current build queue stands at 19 machines, which is an all-time high for us to date.
As a result of our ongoing growth and projected future success several new staff were added in June and stock levels increased in line with current demand. A further 415m2 of workspace has been added & the Meta assembly room will soon be expanded to 100m2.
I want to thank our Dealer network for delivering an outstanding first quarter of sales results and would also thank the entire Lotus Supply/Support team for their exceptional efforts to hold our high level of service during what is for us a rather hectic time.
