Highlights and year 2019 in figures

At NewIcon, 2019 began with excitement, as we organised a share issue in February. With our record round of financing, we were able to obtain new shareholders and gain momentum to reach our growth goals.

The successful round of financing was not the only record we broke this year, as we also closed a deal with Tampere University Hospital to supply the world’s largest automated dispensing system. We also internationalised further as we expanded our operations especially in Scandinavia and the Baltic countries, as well as signed a new distributor contract with Al Razi in the United Arab Emirates.
