“Fiscal year 2012 was a very important year for ZBB Energy, in which we successfully began commercialization of our technologies. We also completed strategic moves to bolster our ability to bring products to market worldwide and set the foundation for future growth. With these key pieces in place, we are well positioned to execute against our growth plans for the next several years,” said Eric Apfelbach, president and chief executive officer of ZBB Energy. “Our backlog and sales funnel continue to be strong, our balance sheet is strong, and we’ve added key members to our team, all of which should translate into accelerated growth as we move into fiscal 2013.”
