Further expansion will result from other sectors. "Delcam is giving increased attention to aerospace firms and other large international companies," said Mr. Christman. "In addition, unlike most vendors, Delcam has targeted specific vertical market segments, such as packaging, footwear, jewelry and ceramics. The vertical solutions leverage core technologies and result in incremental revenue without adversely affecting the base tool business."

Commenting on the report, Delcam's Managing Director Hugh Humphreys said, "I am delighted that CIMdata has such faith in our ability to continue the recent growth in our sales. With our broader range of software and the increasing recognition that we are seeing from larger companies, I am confident that we will enjoy another successful year in 2004."

Delcam is an interesting company because its software handles such a wide variety of design and manufacturing - everything from injection molds to shoes to jewelry. We contacted both CIMdata's Alan Christman and Delcam directly to find out exactly terms defined "fastest growing CAM supplier." Although we did not hear back from Delcam, we did get a response from Mr. Christman. He said that "fastest growing" meant growth of year-over-year revenue for the top ten CAM vendors. OK, that solves that. I've always found it amusing when a company, and not necessarily just CAD/CAM vendors, make a claim, but do not define what the terms of the claim are. I'm glad that CIMdata (speaking for Delcam)
was as forthcoming as it was with clarifying information.
