2007 was good to Haas.

Haas Automation, Inc., of Oxnard, CA, reports 2007 as the most productive year in the company's history, with CNC machine tool production exceeding 13,755 units--up 10 percent from 2006--and a 19 percent increase in revenue, to more than $880 million. The 2007 numbers exceeded the company's record-setting year of 2006.

All Haas' products are built in the company's one million [ft.sup.2] manufacturing facility and distributed worldwide. In 2007, Haas opened more than 30 factory outlets, primarily in international markets. The company plans to open up to 40 more outlets around the world in 2008.
