The Jungheinrich Group maintained its successful growth trajectory in the first quarter of the 2017 financial year. After all-time high figures in fiscal 2016, incoming orders, net sales, production and EBIT all went up compared with the same period of time the previous year.
According to Dr. Volker Hues, CFO of Jungheinrich AG: “The first three months of 2017 have demonstrated we are on schedule and are resolutely maintaining our course for growth. The volume of incoming orders and the high level of orders on hand, resulting in an order reach of over four months, give us cause to have a positive outlook on 2017. On this basis we are upholding our forecast for the current fiscal year, anticipating net sales of €3.3 billion to €3.4 billion and EBIT of €250 million to €260 million.”
