The company said that products from all segments, including laser machines and metrology systems for the automotive industry and optoelectronic systems, helped to generate this increase, as did the settlement of a major order in the Defense & Civil Systems segment.
Jenoptik said that contributions to revenue made by Vysionics ITS Ltd. in England, which Jenoptik acquired in 2014, and foreign currency exchange effects contributed to the increased revenue. In regional terms, North America and Europe showed the greatest growth, but revenue also increased in Asia.
