Partnertech increase sales in 2Q, but ...

Second quarter sales were 2.5% higher for comparable units and in local currencies than the same period of 2012, writes EMS-provider Partnertech.
Leif Thorwaldsson, President and CEO, comments:

"Operating profit of SEK 3 million was lower than the second quarter of 2012, while both cash flow and operating capital turnover improved. Sales trends were mixed during the quarter, where volumes declined through lower demand from existing customers."

"This was compensated by strong sales to new customers. Performance also varied amongst our units. Those that have come the furthest in terms of adapting to more customer oriented operations with higher focus on technology and product development did well, whereas development in others was weaker. Our electronics units turned in excellent performances, mostly due to substantially higher capacity utilization at some of them."

"Demand for our development services also increased, and we signed agreements with new customers for technically advanced products. Machining continued to adjust to lower volumes at the Defense customer segment. Our focus on the rapidly growing Oil&Gas subsegment of systems integration affected our Norwegian unit, which initially experienced low capacity utilization while we are making investments in sales capacity and equipment."
