​Jeanne Beacham, Delphon: Industry Outlook

Well, the light at the end of the tunnel is no longer a train, but rather the bright new opportunities ahead for the industry.

Activity on all fronts has definitely picked up. Bookings steadily increased through the last quarter of 2009 and they are projected to continue growing throughout the coming year.

2010 will bring a change in the definition of "The Industry." The shift in market focus will continue to drive new products and new technology. We have already seen some of the impact related to the "Green Initiative" with Solar and LED advancements that need cost and efficiency improvements in semiconductors and packaging.

2010 will continue to see more emphasis in Medical Device and Electronics and Opto-electronics that will drive new equipment and the need for quick turn prototyping for advanced packaging and handling.

We believe that Delphon Industries is well positioned to take advantage of the growth in the market and to provide the necessary products and services through the Quik-Pak, Gel-Pak, TouchMark and UltraTape divisions. Jeanne Beacham, CEO, Delphon Industries
