Image Scan, has witnessed “robust” trading in the year to date, according to an update released ahead of its Annual General Meeting.
The firm noted that order intake is in line with management expectations and that it has signed a UK distribution agreement with Italian X-ray company Gilardoni.
The company has also revealed an initiative to develop its sales efforts in North America and has contracted a former US Marine, who is an experienced programme manager and senior Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technician.
Image Scan’s Chairman and Chief Executive, Bill Mawer, said: “Our organic growth strategy is focussed on expansion of both our product range and our market reach, so it is pleasing to be able to report on progress in both these areas. I am particularly delighted to welcome our new sales consultant, as he comes with considerable experience and expertise, and gives us, for the first time, a footprint in the USA.
“As I said in the annual report, the portable X-ray market is competitive, but our offer is a strong one and we are working hard to differentiate our product range and expand into adjacent sectors. Image Scan has made a promising start to the year and is trading in line with market expectations. I am optimistic for a good first half and hope we can continue our current momentum through the rest of the year.”
