2020 Annual Report launched
Mark Webster, Chief Executive Officer, commented
“Our priority during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic remains the health and safety of our staff, customers and suppliers. We are very proud of the way our staff have responded to this unprecedented challenge.
“FY2020 profits were affected by temporary disruption to manufacturing and lower demand in some subsectors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have continued to invest in our high priority R&D targets, been able to maintain a strong balance sheet and have improved our liquidity levels.
“Our order book is robust and there remains considerable long term potential for
our photonic technologies and system capabilities in all of our target sectors.
“The challenge of the pandemic has validated our long term strategic goals of diversification and moving up the value chain. We intend to vigorously pursue these goals through internal investment and where appropriate, acquisitions.”
At Gooch & Housego, we create sustainable value by leveraging our products and capabilities to diversify into new markets.
