Hans-Georg Frey, Chairman of the Board of Management of Jungheinrich AG: "We stayed our strong course for growth in 2016. For the first time, we surpassed the €3 billion mark in terms of both net sales and incoming orders. We outgrew our peer group and expanded our share of the global market.

The good level of incoming orders by the end of last year has been maintained this year and gives us a positive outlook on the first six months underway. Based on the good figures posted in the first two months of the current year, if the developments witnessed in 2017 thus far continue, we should be able to achieve incoming orders of between €3.4 and €3.5 billion and consolidated net sales in the range of €3.3 to €3.4 billion. Based on our assessments, EBIT for the current fiscal year should total between €250 and €260 million."
