"This is very encouraging", says Kustaa Poutiainen, Chief Executive Officer of Picosun. "Our success in sales verifies the strength of our portfolio of specialized ALD systems both for research and production use."

Combined, Picosun people possess more than 200 years of first class ALD experience making it the most experienced designer and manufacturer of ALD equipment ever to exist.

"This unrivalled wealth of knowledge is the secret behind our ability to build the most innovative and reliable line of ALD tools," Poutiainen says. "Customers interested in obtaining the best package are coming to us."

Picosun has traditionally been very strong in Asia, especially Japan and China. "We have further strengthened results in our traditional markets there, and added Australasia as a new element of success into our list of customers."

We have been able to win that market with our combination of reasonable prices whilst meeting one of the most rigorous and challenging set of quality and performance criteria in the world," explains Kustaa Poutiainen.
