Beneq in 2016 – A Successful Strategic Transformation

Beneq’s financial figures from 2016 show growth, encouraging signs of transformation, and positive development in industrial ALD solutions. Beneq corporation turnover grew to 22,2 million euros in 2016. And Beneq is a truly global company: 98% of the company turnover came from outside Finland.

The year 2016 was a transformation year for Beneq in many ways. In Thin Film Solutions, there was a shift from traditional ALD research equipment towards large-scale industrial ALD equipment and thin film services – a trend which has continued during 2017. The equipment business order flow in the first quarter of 2017 was 70% higher than during Q1/2016 with several new industrial ALD customers and repeat orders from customers who are expanding ALD-based industrial production.
For the Thin Film Solutions business unit, major development areas are industrial ALD equipment and continuous large-area ALD processes based on Beneq’s pioneering Spatial ALD technology, which allows fast low-cost processing of materials in industries that require extremely precise coatings and high capacity, such as OLED and flexible electronics markets.
