Computer manufacturer Acer announced that its personal computer sales grew 54 per cent growth in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.
In the EMEA Region, Acer strengthened its leadership in the notebook sector with a 65.4 per cent growth rate (third quarter of 2006 vs. third quarter of 2007) and a 23.6 per cent market share, consolidating its second position in the total PC Market.
"By tradition, the EMEA region is the geographical area in which Acer has the strongest presence, and the exponential growth rates of the third quarter once again underline our ability to offer products that satisfy the real demands of our customers. The continuity of our positive results backs our growth expectations and anchors the Acer name as the brand of choice for users," commented Walter Deppeler, Acer's deputy senior vice-president.
These positive results have allowed Acer to strengthen and retain its leadership in the EMEA notebook sector in which it is currently positioned at the top of the rankings in 10 countries: Russia, Czech Republic, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Hungary, Finland, Poland, Spain and Germany.
"The significant transformations within the PC industry led us to re-design our internal structure. At the beginning of 2007 we implemented a significant new business unit organisation that derived its origins from a different approach to product positioning: the strategy of focusing our priorities on delivering solutions that satisfy the specific needs of the market, which was rewarded with significant growth and vastly improved customer satisfaction, has now evolved into a more efficient system that captures the true needs of the user and delivers complete solutions," added Deppeler.
