For ORPRO Vision, 2009 has been a year of foundation. The history of our activity goes back 12 years, to 1997 when Orbotech created the Assembly AOI division with the acquisition of Schuh GmbH. Orbotech consolidated the business until the acquisition by ORPRO Vision. This infuses ORPRO Vision with a unique combination of start-up spirit and market leader experience. The year 2009 has been an economic challenge for everyone. Many segments of our industry have been deeply affected by the global financial crisis. Founding a new company in such a difficult situation has been a challenge inside the challenge, but also a great opportunity to prove who we are and what we can offer to our customers. The extraordinary and partly unexpected volume of people visiting us at Productronica in Munich and at SMTAI in San Diego confirmed that our customers confidence in our post-paste and post-reflow inspection systems increased. R&D is at the heart of our activity. ORPRO Vision is part of a holding of established distribution companies in all aspects of electronics production, from printing to soldering. This depth of experience across the group informs our R&D, with developments driven by integration of AOI technology in the production line. ORPRO Visions development plans and products include not only inspection systems, but flexible, scalable, integrated solutions to satisfy the needs of todays, and tomorrows, production line. Our solutions and developments help our customers achieve high yields and top quality results. Our focus for 2010 and onward, is to develop a brand new concept of inspection. The new platform has been conceived to manage any future ORPRO Vision system, and to be capable of inspecting any technology in the electronics application field. This project is driven by simplicty, ease-of-use, process speed and easy programming. Current products will be improved by new software releases on an ongoing basis. A new Bench-Top system, the first system out of the new platform project, which was shown in Prototype at Productronica and SMTAI, will be implemented and officially released in the coming year. Our Sales and Service structures will be further strengthened through 2010 with the addition of new distributors in Europe and the Americas, to guarantee the support customers expect.
