Melexis’ gross profit margin has risen to €192.1 million, which is an increase of 19% compared to the previous year.
Among the main sources of revenue growth were the company’s magnetic sensor and sensor interface offerings, as well as its products for in-vehicle networking, wireless sensing and far infra-red (FIR) sensing.
“Melexis is in a very strong position financially. We are proud to achieve such results,” states Françoise Chombar, Melexis’ CEO. “This performance clearly demonstrates that the Melexis product portfolio is fully capable of addressing the many challenges our customers face in developing next generation car models, as well as enabling major advances to be realised in industrial, home automation and medical sectors.”
