Favorable growth in all Business Units
In 2012 MVG Group gave structure to 4 Business Units:
The Antenna Measurement Systems (AMS) Business Unit, the Group's traditional core business, accounted for 90% of revenues for the 2012 financial year. The sale of products, systems and services for this business unit profited from an even spread between the Aerospace/Defense (55%) and Civil Telecommunications (45%) sectors. The combined provision of services, maintenance and engineering covered by this unit accounted for 26% of revenues; mounting evidence of a promising outlook for future financial years.
The Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Business Unit accounted for €2.8 million in 2012, 6% of revenues. This new business unit was strengthened by the acquisition of the English company Rainford EMC in July 2012.
The Environmental and Industrial Control (EIC) Business Unit, covering electromagnetic wave monitoring products (safety in the workplace, public health), and production line quality-control equipment, accounted for €1.8 million, almost 4% of revenues.
