Turnover in 2014 reaches a total of 8823 million €

Against a background of moderate international economic development, Liebherr recorded a slight change in turn-over for the 2014 business year, with a total of 8823 million €, 1.6 % below the previous year’s figure. The international economic situation continued to recover in 2014, though to different extents from one country to another. Global economic growth for the year was 3.4 %.

Liebherr’s construction machinery and mining division achieved a turn-over of 5294 million €, 6.0 % below the previous year’s figure. The result was positive, however, in the area represented by the maritime cranes, aerospace and transportation systems, machine tools and others. The profit for the reporting period was 316 million €. The number of people employed by Liebherr Group companies rose again last year. At the end of 2014 the worldwide total was 40 839, this was 3.6 % more than in the previous year.

The Liebherr Group views the current year with optimism. Total turnover is expected to rise. All Group divisions are expected to develop positively or at least to equal last year’s turnover. Divisions that will probably exhibit especially dynamic growth are earthmoving, tower cranes, machine tools and automation systems and the other products and services area. The Liebherr Group’s investments in product development, production and the sales and service network on all continents will again easily exceed depreciation. This will be accompanied by a further increase in the size of the workforce.
