Excalibur Integrated Systems, Inc., Chattanooga-based wireless technology firm, reported its highest sales quarter in company history, CEO Rodger Jenkins announced on Wednesday. The company also announced the prospect of increased local hiring this year.

“We are very excited about the growth trend that Excalibur has been experiencing in recent months. We are delivering more high-quality user-oriented technology solutions to locations around North America and the world,” Mr.

Jenkins said.

“We expect this growth trend to continue, and that may lead to expanding the technical, sales and administrative staff at our Chattanooga operation,” he said. “Our customers expect us to deliver a high level of service, and that is our commitment as well.”

With a 31-percent increase in sales last quarter over the second quarter 2012, Excalibur experienced particular growth in orders from the manufacturing, education and government sectors, both regionally and nationally.

“Even with the sluggish economy, we are experiencing increased demand for wireless networking and data collection solutions,” Mr. Jenkins said. “Many businesses and organizations feel more confident about making investments in wireless infrastructure while the opportunity costs are lower.”
