Jungheinrich on track

Jungheinrich continued to grow in the first quarter of the 2018 financial year. Net sales, incoming orders and production continued to increase compared to the same period last year.

  • Q1 2018: Net sales +10%, incoming order units +5% & value +6%
  • Orders on hand from the end of March: +13% compared with the end of 2017
  • Orders account for five months of production
  • Forecast for 2018 confirmed

Dr Volker Hues, CFO of Jungheinrich AG: “We are on track to reach our goals for 2018. Due to seasonal effects, the EBIT margin is slightly below what it was last year. Growth is now showing signs of regularisation after its exceptional growth rates over the last four years. The current number of orders on hand forms a good basis for continuing this business trend. We are therefore looking at the 2018 financial year with optimism.”
