Haas Automation, Inc., of Oxnard, California, reports that 2007 was the most productive year in the company's history, with CNC machine tool production exceeding 13,755 units – up 10 percent over 2006 – and a 19-percent increase in revenues to more than $880 million. The 2007 numbers – which exceeded previous records set in 2006 – reinforce Haas Automation's position as the world's leading CNC machine tool builder.

All Haas products are built in the company's 1-million-square-foot manufacturing facility in Southern California. They are distributed worldwide through a global network of Haas Factory Outlets (HFOs) that provide the industry's best sales, service and support. In 2007, Haas opened more than 30 new HFOs, primarily in international markets; the company plans to open as many as 40 new HFOs worldwide in 2008.

"Our growing HFO network allows us to provide Haas customers around the world with local access to Haas products, sales assistance, replacement parts and factory-trained service personnel," stated Haas General Manager Bob Murray. "This commitment to serving our customers is one of the driving forces behind Haas' global success."

Sales of Haas CNC machine tools hit an all-time high of 13,663 units in 2007 – an increase of nearly 20 percent over 2006 – and the company shipped a record 13,751 units worldwide. For the first time, more than half of all Haas CNC machine tools sold during the year went to international markets.

In Europe, Haas machine tool sales increased by an impressive 58 percent over 2006, and sales in China grew by a remarkable 65 percent. In Asia, excluding China, Haas sales expanded by 20 percent, and sales in Latin America increased by 17.5 percent.

"It was an incredible year," continued Mr. Murray, "and we owe a lot to our international customers. We will continue investing in our growing international markets to ensure that all Haas customers receive the high-quality products and world-class service they deserve."
