In a year that has seen the healthiest increase in EDT bookings since 2013 and having secured in September the order for two of our flagship machines, the 72 electrode Rolltex EDT for Donggang in China, Sarclad are pleased to report that we have secured another order in China for two more 72 Rolltex EDT’s for Tangshan, as well as an order for an Eco EDT for Metex in Germany. Bringing the total number of EDT’s in backlog for 2019 delivery to six. A further milestone of note is that these contracts will take the total number of Sarclad supplied EDT’s to over a 100. Something the business is very proud of.
Richard Cowlishaw, Managing Director of Sarclad expressed his delight with the fantastic result;
“Congratulations and well done to everyone involved in securing these vital contracts. This is a great achievement for the business and will certainly test our processes and abilities to execute to plan next year.”
In addition, there are still a number of other real EDT opportunities Sarclad are hoping to secure before year end, for both 2018 and 2019 deliveries. Although timing is now very tight for 2018, Sarclad continue to push forward with the prebuild of these contracts in the hope that the orders are received in time, but if not then there will be additional units to add to the already very healthy 2019 backlog.
