Quotes from management:

“I am extremely pleased that Europe has performed so well this quarter, with marked increases in both sales and orders. Europe continues to be an extremely important market for Hurco due to the fact that it accounts for a large percentage of our high-performance machines. We are gaining traction in Asia as we continue to identify companies with more complex manufacturing needs, which is important since these companies can realize the greatest benefit from our control technologies. While activity in North America was somewhat softer than in the corresponding periods in 2013, I am confident our new machines, next generation control and new software technologies will generate excitement at the upcoming International Manufacturing Technology Show as customers seek to increase their productivity and profitability.”
