Schwarzmüller growing strongly in Germany
Sales in Germany surged strongly in the first seven months of the current year for the Austrian commercial vehicle manufacturer Schwarzmüller. An enormous demand for complex, tailor made transport solutions points to the country’s highly developed market.
This was reflected by the fact that Schwarzmüller’s order intake from Germany was 40% higher than that of 7M/2016. The shift in demand towards more construction machinery was more pronounced than in any other market. The building sector accounts for 45% of all the new orders, and they were actually 50% higher than in the preceding year.
Germany, where Schwarzmüller plans to sell a total of 2,400 units in 2017, will become the company’s strongest market for the first time, thereby overtaking Austria. This is in line with Schwarzmüller’s growth strategy. (mw)
