Siemens Says

Siemens Electronics Assembly says its October-February 2010 orders for placement machines were the same as the entire previous 12 months.

The company credits China and the rest of Asia, adding that orders from Europe are on the rise, too.

“For the period from October through February, global new order bookings more than tripled compared to the same period last year,” the company said.
