Segue Manufacturing Services Enters 2010 With Record Backlog

Fourth Quarter Bookings Skyrocket as Companies in Core Markets Continue to Invest in Segue's Strengths and Strategies

LOWELL, MA--(Marketwire - February 2, 2010) - Segue Manufacturing Services (Segue), a leading New England contract manufacturer, today announced that the company completed 2009 with record bookings that generated a starting backlog for 2010 up 102% over 2009. Several new customer wins increased Segue's leading position in the homeland security, military and medical equipment markets.

During 2009, Segue received ITAR registration, completed its tri-annual ISO 9001 re-audit and received ISO 13485 certification to increase its strength in the medical equipment marketplace. Segue continued its lean, 5s, and training programs to improve efficiency, service, safety and profitability.

"Manufacturers, especially in this challenging economy, are reducing their vendor base, requiring their vendors to have strong business continuity plans and strong balance sheets. Our strengths are mirroring these requirements perfectly," said Bill Roderick, Vice President of Sales at Segue Manufacturing Services. "We have a growing number of major accounts and have added new customers across a range of industries including medical equipment manufacturing, military and homeland security. It is exciting to see the marketplace responding to the processes and initiatives that we undertook in 2009 to help improve customer service, drive sales and lower costs."

In response to customers' needs, Segue has invested in a highly-dedicated staff, efficient systems and state-of-the-art technology. This has resulted in the development of streamlined and controlled manufacturing processes for its customers through the application of lean manufacturing and JIT/Demand flow principles.
