Year-to-date shipments as of May 31, 2022, exceeded total shipments in full year 2021
NUREMBERG, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–VIA optronics AG (NYSE: VIAO) (“VIA” or the “Company”), a leading supplier of interactive display systems and solutions, today announced record shipments of over 31,000 units as of May 31, 2022, at its Nuremberg production site.
In May 2022, VIA shipped and produced 16,000 display units in total at its Nuremberg production site, bringing the Company’s year-to-date shipments to 31,010 units and breaking the Company’s 2021 full year record of 22,173 units.
Jürgen Eichner, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of VIA optronics AG, commented, “We are thrilled to announce this milestone given the fact that VIA’s Nuremberg facility was initially set up for small volumes and key technology development. The shipments record demonstrates VIA’s ability to adjust quickly to geopolitical developments by establishing the factory and ramping up the complete automotive line in a very short period. This seamless pivot exemplifies VIA’s consistent execution against our stated initiatives and production ramp up objectives. Achieving this record number of shipments after only five months further proves how we continue to deliver on our expansion plans, despite the semiconductor shortage, lockdowns in China, and other supply-chain-related challenges. This increase in shipments demonstrates not only our innovative capabilities, but also the growing demand for our display solutions.”
