The restructuring measures of the last two years are clearly showing their impact. Our company is lean and strong and we are internationally positioned with good growth potential in all our core markets.”

The group generated 48.1% of its sales in Europe (previous year: 47.2%), 45.4% in North America (previous year: 47.3%) and 6.5% in other regions (previous year: 5.5%).
