FY22 half year trading update
Gooch & Housego PLC (AIM: GHH), the specialist manufacturer of photonic components & systems, provides an update on trading in the six months ended 31 March 2022.
In the first half of the financial year we have seen strong and sustained levels of overall
demand and the Group has a record order book across all its principal areas of business, industrial lasers, telecoms, A&D and life sciences. There continues to be high demand for industrial lasers, especially for those used in semiconductor manufacturing where G&H has captured market share in a growing market.
Medical lasers continue to benefit from the strong return of elective surgery and demand for our medical diagnostics has remained at a high level. We have recently secured important orders for our A&D business, including the supply of an upgraded optical imaging suite for a major UK A&D programme.
At Gooch & Housego, we create sustainable value by leveraging our products and capabilities to diversify into new markets.
