March 28, 2014 - 

Fingerprint Cards has announced an order worth $US 4.62 million (SEK 30M) from its distributor in China and Taiwan, Hardware & Software Technologies Co.

This order is larger than one that came from the same distributor at this time last year.

According to the company, the new order is for the FPC 1011F3 area sensor and delivery is scheduled to start already in March 2014.

“This order confirms our leading position in the market for capacitive authentication devices for Chinese Banks, where FPC is considered the ‘de facto’ standard and enjoys a dominant market share in excess of 80%,” Johan Carlström, President and CEO of Fingerprint Cards AB said.

Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, in March 2013, FPC received an order worth SEK 20M from HST, SEK 10M than the order placed this year.
