The folks over at SiCortex today announced record growth in Q1 of 2009, to the tune of 100%. The company’s bookings grew by 122% from Q4 of 2008 to Q1 2009, with average system values rising by more than 50%. According to the release, they added ten new customers this quarter across US and Canada. These included government entities, universities and commercial organizations.
New customer Catherine Cooper, associate professor in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Washington State University, commented, “I’m incredibly excited to have the machine installed here. It will perform the calculations that make my research on Earth processes possible. One of the main reasons I chose to purchase this [SiCortex] machine is that it’s engineered to work on much less electricity…the bottom line is that we need to be as efficient as we can, and this machine fits with that goal.”
Good news from the SiCortex camp. Outside of the pure numbers, one should especially pay attention to their commercial sales. In an economy such as this, the “new kid on the street” continues to grow and impress. For more info, read the full release here.
