MBX Systems, a leading provider of server appliances, dedicated computing and storage solutions for application developers and OEMs worldwide, today announced record revenue growth in the first of half 2010. Improvements were also gained across the board based on the Company’s key performance indicators:

  • Revenues from new design wins: 30% of overall revenues resulted from 2009 competitive wins
  • New prototypes: Increased prototypes built for run-rate customers by 42% over the prior six-month period
  • Key-customer growth: revenue increased by 22% across Top 25 customers
  • Customer retention: retention rate of 96% for Top 25 customers
  • Close ratio: Win percentage increased by over 50% in competitive situations

According to Chris Schmidt, MBX Systems Director of Sales and Marketing, “There are many reasons for our revenue growth, but most competitive wins fall squarely on our ability to develop the type of platforms and services that enable MBX to extend our reach into key vertical and international markets. More and more, MBX is becoming application developers’ first choice for configuring robust platforms and providing turnkey services that simplify their application deployment.”

MBX has had positive growth throughout the recent economic downturn in 2009 and concurrently executed a plan to support future growth:

  • Completed a facility addition that tripled manufacturing capacity
  • Built a new domestic distribution/logistics warehouse
  • Expanded services internationally to allow same day delivery of systems staged across the globe
  • Introduced shipping until midnight on the last day of each month to enable customers to meet revenue recognition requirements
  • Introduced high-end platforms targeted to streamline configurations for embedded systems and high performance computing (HPC)
  • Completed recertification to ISO 9001:2008 quality standards

“Our business development personnel have achieved success conveying that MBX can engineer platforms to solve application developers’ deployment challenges,” says Chris Tucker, Manager of Business Development at MBX Systems. “Our length and breadth of platform configuration experience and programmatic team approach attracts businesses to MBX and has fueled our competitive win ratio.”

Schmidt adds, “Our customers say they value MBX as much for their account team relationship as for manufacturing quality, flexibility and scalability. They have easy access to their technical, support and services team who are tightly aligned to their program’s success. Other manufacturers charge a la carte for many key services, but MBX has always believed that a successful deployment program includes both products and services. As a result, many customers who switched to us from another contract manufacturer say they are more confident selling their MBX-built systems.”

MBX Systems celebrated its 15th anniversary in April 2010.
