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.
