Share Article

LXE Inc., a leading manufacturer of rugged wireless computers that improve the performance of supply-chain execution applications, announced today that it set another record for fourth-quarter and full year 2004 revenues. The fourth-quarter mark extends LXE’s run of record year-over-year quarters to nine, and 2004 represents a fourth consecutive full-year revenue record.

In 2004, LXE introduced several technologically superior rugged mobile computers, including the Windows® CE .NET-based VX6 and VX7 vehicle-mounted computers and the extremely versatile RFID-enabled MX3-RFID handheld computer.

“Market acceptance of these new units has exceeded our expectations,” says Bill Roeder, LXE’s Senior Vice President & Deputy General Manager. “And we are seeing significant interest from our existing tier-one customers around the concept we introduced in 2004 - the mobile, vehicle mounted RFID reader."

LXE’s reputation for the best service and support in the industry grew in 2004, with the company earning a third-consecutive Mobile Star AwardTM for the industry's best customer service.

Sales of LXE products internationally continued to grow significantly with particularly strong performance in the Pacific Rim, the Middle East and Latin America.

"Our dedication to unparalleled customer support, our commitment to building the most rugged and reliable products in the industry, and the investments we've made in our distribution channels continue to pay off," says Jim Childress, LXE President and General Manager. "Four straight years of record growth, from a company that’s been around for decades, confirms we are headed in the right direction."

“The word that best describes LXE right now is acceleration,” says Peter Fausel, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We are capturing market share at a faster clip, not only within the end-user community, but also within the value-added-reseller community.”
