“Our evolution from a technology developer to a manufacturer of critical components for the computer industry is proceeding at a rapid pace,” Jeff Hawthorne, president and CEO of UniPixel, said. “We established our brand and shipped to our initial customers in 2015. During the current year we validated the market demand for our metal mesh XTouch sensors with 24 design wins and maintained a strong focus on increasing factory efficiency. We now head into 2017, which is the year we begin to fulfill customer demand in volume.”
The company also announced that it recently shipped its two millionth touch screen sensor produced at its Colorado Springs manufacturing facility. UniPixel has made significant process improvements at the manufacturing facility, having achieved material cost reductions of 49% and overall touch sensor yields by 35% during 2016 to date.
