2014 was NKK's best year ever. We started business in 2000 and have alrways increased sales each and every year until 2008-2009 when the financial markets collapsed Worldwide. But since then we have resumed our upward growth. During the latest year we had a growth rate of 17%.
Increasingly, our product lines of commercial winding equipment have become the preferred winders and metering systems the World over. Our customized needle gauges and many other tools have also contributed to a strong revenue growth year in 2014.
So far, 2015 is off to a great start as well and shows initial signs of outperforming 2014.
In order to maintain control over our quality designs, however, we will begin to limit production on some products such as ball winders as time goes on. We strongly feel that it is more important to maintain the level of product excellence that we have achieved rather than jeopardize that for simple revenue growth.
