2018 has been another good year for the Dr. Helmut Rothenberger Holding group.
All companies contributed in sales, earnings and free cash flow to the best result to date in the history of our group.
We expect the acquisition of the Master WorkHolding to significantly contribute to the presence of RÖHM in the US and to strengthen the production capabilities for our technology solutions.
In Austria, the takeover of FRAI Robotersysteme will enhance the competence of our machine tools and components group in automation and robotics.
As of July 1, 2018, the remaining shares of LEISTRITZ AG have been acquired and consolidated.
With a sales volume of more than 1.5 billion euro, the consolidated group and associated companies of the Dr. Helmut Rothenberger Holding have clearly exceeded the plan for 2018.
Despite of a mild market slowdown, we expect for 2019 a strong and profitable growth of 6–8 % based on a strong order book.
Anniversaries of ROTHENBERGER (70 years), WALTER Werkzeuge (100 years) and of the NORDWEST Handel AG (100 years) will also positively contribute to our 2019 results.
I would like to extend my personal thanks and appreciation for this great achievement to all our loyal and committed employees, the management, our business partners as well as my family. They all contributed to this very positive development of our group.
