Brother Gulf's revenues rose 25% in 2006, beating expectations for the year, the firm said last week.

The company would not reveal how much it made last year, but said growth was driven by sales of its multifunction centres (MFCs).

Revenues for its laser MFCs shot up 70% in 2006, while sales of its colour inkjet MFCs grew by 40% year-on-year.

The company said corporate clients, the small office/home office (Soho) sector and consumers all contributed to growth in Brother's MFC business.

"Our emphasis on technological innovation and our ability to identify emerging markets and provide ideal solutions across segments have translated into strong revenue growth and sustained market share," said Shinji Tada, managing director of Brother Gulf. "The Middle East is a prime market for our company's diverse solutions, as the bullish economy has raised the spending power of households and spurred new business activities."
