Jungheinrich on growth trajectory

Jungheinrich again continued to grow in the first quarter of the 2019 financial year. Despite an increasingly challenging market, incoming orders, revenue and all results were increased compared with the same period of the previous year.

“We have continued the success of the previous year. With a revenue growth of 9 per cent, we made a strong start to 2019. In this quarter, we have seen initial downward trends in individual regions of the world market. Based on the persistent geopolitical and economic challenges, we assume that we will not be able to continue this growth throughout the entire year.  The forecast for 2019 is confirmed in all key figures,” Dr Volker Hues, CFO of Jungheinrich AG said.

Highlights include:

  • Q1 2019: revenue +9 per cent, incoming orders +11 per cent
  • EBIT, EBT and profit or loss above same quarter of the previous year
  • Orders on hand as of end of March: +9 % compared to end of 2018
  • Forecast for 2019 confirmed
