Clement Forget, President and CEO of Clemex Technologies Inc. declared: "The rise in the activity level from the United States remains precarious; however the demand for our products remains continuous on International markets, mainly in Asia and India. Our automated MicroHardness tester recently launched, the CMT.HD, is highly appreciated since this instrument is used for quality control laboratories in the automotive industry, a sector which is still quite active in that part of the world. We continue to maintain all operation costs to their minimum, allowing a profit to be declared despite a reduction in sales compared to the same period last year." He continued: "On the other hand, the development of our new medical instrument for Hematology applications is on target, and we are very confident that a prototype will be ready this spring and that first sales should begin in fall of 2010."
