Sant'Antonino, Switzerland, January 22, 2018. Interroll, the material handling specialist, experienced strong growth again in 2017, achieving record results: order intake rose to CHF 458.1 million (+13.0 percent compared with previous year), and net sales to CHF 450.7 million (+12.3 percent).

At CHF 458.1 million, the order intake in 2017 was +13.0 percent up on the previous year's value (+12.0 percent in local currencies). Order intake in 2017 was the highest in the company's history. The Americas region grew above average, at +21.1 percent on the previous year.

 

Boosted by a particularly strong fourth quarter in 2017, the net sales in the reporting currency increased by +12.3 percent to CHF 450.7 million (+11.3% in local currencies), representing another company record. Organic sales growth contributed +12.0 percent. The Drives (+19.0 percent compared with the previous year) and Conveyors & Sorters (+17.6 percent) product groups were particular growth drivers here.
