Forbes names AEM one of Asia’s ‘Best Under a Billion’ 2019

AEM, the maker of the TestPro cable certifier is a diversified company that also supplies semiconductor equipment and machine-vision technology. AEM Holdings, manufacturer of the TestPro Multifunction Cable Tester, recently was named one of Asia’s ‘Best Under a Billion’ firms by Forbes—referring to the company’s annual revenues of less than $1 billion.

Writing for Forbes, Pamela Ambler explained that AEM revenues rose 18% in 2018 to S$262 million (US$195 million). While Ambler reported the company expects a revenue decline in 2019, she pointed out that AEM’s testing portfolio is being used on Huawei’s 5G rollout in China.

“Over the past two years [AEM] has spent $13 million on acquisitions,” Ambler reported. “This include Singapore’s IRIS Solution, a machine vision firm, and Finland’s Afore, which is jointly developing a wafer-testing tool with Intel and has a deal with Taiwan’s Foxconn to test microchips. AEM also bought InspiRain Technologies, a Singapore-based company that supplies cable testers for Huawei’s 5G rollout in China.”

Forbes writer Jonathan Burgos stated that the Best Under a Billion list “highlights 200 Asia-Pacific public companies with less than $1 billion in revenue and consistent top- and bottom-line growth. These companies posted more than 50% average growth in annual net profit and sales in their latest financial year, to a combined $10 billion and $54 billion, respectively.”

In 2018, AEM’s TestPro CV100 Multifunction Cable Tester received a Gold award in the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Cabling Innovators Awards program.

Harshang Pandya, general manager of test and measurement at AEM International, said at the time, “Coming off the launch of TestPro, and the Category 8 Field Tester Accuracy Certification from ETL/Intertek, we’re honored to be recognized. TestPro offers the fastest cable certification speeds on the market today—a six-second Category 6A certification test—and can qualify multi-gig link speed and verify loaded PoE at a fraction of the cost of older technologies. As organizations continue shifting toward digital infrastructure, contractors and network owners can rely on the power of TestPro.”

Heynen is proud to support and supply AEM TestPro in the Benelux region.
