Hardinge Inc. Reports Net Income Grows 69% On 11% Increase In Sales For Fourth Quarter 2011

Mr. Simons noted, “The significant capital used for expanding our capacity and improving our operations were critical, strategic investments in our future and we believe will better enable us to capitalize on the opportunities we see in the expanding machine tool market. We have more than doubled our manufacturing capacity in China in order to better serve the Asian market as its consumption of machine tools is expected to grow at a double digit compounded rate for the next few years. As well, Kellenberger, our operation in Switzerland, is among the top suppliers of high-precision cylindrical grinding machines in the world and we expect the enhancements we have made in that operation will facilitate our capture of a greater share of that highly specialized market.”
