Au/Wädenswil, April 11, 2017 — Von Roll Hol­ding AG publis­hed its first quar­ter 2017 results today. Fol­lowing a lean period of over 4 years, the Von Roll Group has once again retur­ned to a posi­tive first quar­ter pro­fit, amoun­ting to CHF 4.6 mil­lion (pre­vious year: CHF ‑3.4 mil­lion). At CHF 96.0 mil­lion, orders recei­ved in 2017 are signi­fi­cantly above the last year’s level of CHF 88.0 mil­lion, and tur­no­ver has risen by 8.5% to CHF 93.2 million.

The main dri­vers of the posi­tive busi­ness deve­lo­p­ment were suc­cess­ful struc­tu­ral impro­ve­ments and incre­a­sed demand for our pro­ducts in the Electri­cal Insu­la­tion and Com­po­si­tes sec­tors. Based on rising order volu­mes and the pro­gram­mes laun­ched in the new busi­ness year to incre­ase both sales and pro­duc­tion effi­ci­ency, the Von Roll Group is con­fi­dent about the busi­ness out­look for the rema­in­der of 2017.
