LONDON -- EMS provider TT Electronics reported earnings rose 7% last year on a 1% hike in sales for the year ended Dec. 31.

Pre-tax profits from continuing operations were up 6.7% to £33.3 million, before one-time profits in 2006. Sales hit £544.9 million.

The company cautioned for the 2008 outlook. “While current trading is expected to remain overall similar to 2007, the further reorganization of operations, difficulties in the credit markets and concerns as to the effect on the global economy causes the board to take a cautious view for the current year,” said executive chairman John Newman.

During the year, TT's pension fund deficit was reduced to £17.4 million from £72.6 million a year ago.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
