AOC will discontinue operations at its Garbagnate facility in Italy.

“Unusual and unexpected costs contributed to profit margins well below expected returns,” said Mr. Randy A. Weghorst, President and CEO. Weghorst continued, “Higher expenses than anticipated prevented any opportunity for a successful venture. It is best we discontinue operations to avoid further losses.”

Mr. Weghorst said, “AOC is pleased with the European customer acceptance of our technologies and products. Although we are disappointed in our initial experience in Europe, we still plan to build on the foundation and relationships established in the last few years. Our long term commitment to be a global supplier has not been diminished, only delayed.”
