The ALERT Group of Companies has almost doubled last year's turnover, reaching 23.16 million Euros (USD 34.1 million) in 2007.
These results confirm the sustained growth trend maintained over the last years. In 2006, ALERT had already doubled the previous year turnover, positive results which already date back from 2001.
The 2007 growth also reflects the success obtained after a strong internationalization policy. ALERT® products are already being implemented in healthcare facilities in the US, Italy, Spain, and Brazil. In Brazil alone, eight thousand healthcare facilities will have ALERT® products following a recently signed contract with the State of Minas Gerais.
In 2008, ALERT expects that over 50% of the turnover will result from international contracts.
