Fiscal year 2018 was another record-breaking year for our company as we reached a new high in net sales. We achieved double-digit sales growth for the third time in the past four years. New business from both existing and new customers helped us exceed our publicly stated goal of $1 billion in annual sales in fiscal year 2018. This achievement was very gratifying for our entire global team, especially given that the goal was set more than three years ago just shortly after becoming a stand-alone public company.
Our 2018 Annual Report is titled GOING BEYOND. This theme was selected as we begin GOING BEYOND one billion dollars in annual sales, GOING BEYOND our core Electronics Manufacturing Services with additional Diversified Contract Manufacturing Services, and GOING BEYOND as we take the first steps toward the investment in our new platform strategy. Feel free to view our 2018 Annual Report to gain further insight into how Kimball Electronics intends to keep "going beyond".
