Interroll expecting strong organic growth

Sant’Antonino, Switzerland, 10 July 2018 - Materials handling specialist Interroll expects strong organic sales growth of around 18 percent for the first half of 2018 along with a disproportionately high increase in operating profit (EBIT) of at least 20 percent. All regions and product groups showed an increase compared with the same period last year.

“The sales in markets for high-quality materials handling solutions are developing well worldwide,” explains Daniel Bättig, Chief Financial Officer of Interroll Holding AG, adding: “The Group’s growth drivers in the first half of 2018 were numerous project orders, innovative products and services and consistent cost and investment management.”

 

Ad-hoc announcements on relevant project orders were published on 9 April 2018 (follow-up orders in North America) and 12 June 2018 (major order for a modular conveyor platform in South Korea).

 

Interroll will publish its 2018 interim report on 3 August 2018 at 6:30 a.m. (CEST); a webcast on the 2018 interim results is scheduled on the same day at 9:00 a.m. (CEST).
