The 2008-2009 financial crisis is clearly visible in the figures, but could not stop us from resuming our growth path again from 2010 on.
The number of different customers ordering from Eurocircuits in a given year is growing steadily, and was not affected by the economical downturn of 2008-2009

- 2009 : 4507 customers ordering
- 2010 : 5692 customers ordering
- 2011 : 6485 customers ordering or a growth of 13.93 % over 2010
All these customers are placing a growing number of orders:
- 2007 : 35.834 orders processed
- 2008 : 38.569 orders processed
- 2009 : 42.614 orders processed

This continuing growth in number of orders could no longer be managed by our main production unit in Hungary, Eurocircuits Kft. So in 2009 we bought a second production unit in Aachen - Germany, Eurocircuits Aachen GmbH. Both units together guarantee an excellent delivery performance and give us the necessary extra capacity to continue our growth.
Eurocircuits Kft in Eger, Hungary processes 51 % of the orders and counts for 70% of our turnover
Eurocircuits Aachen GmbH processes 49 % of the orders and counts for 30% of our turnover
For many years we have seen an increasing demand for shorter delivery terms. For prototypes and small batches (=<50dm²) up to 4-layer boards, we shortened our standard delivery term to 7 working days. Our shortest delivery term is now 2 working days for 1-, 2- and 4-layer boards and 3 working days for higher layer counts (see our calculation tool). When there is a need for even shorter delivery terms we are willing to explore the possibilities. Help us to make the right choices by participating in the following poll:
