Wielton reports sales boom

Poland-based OEM, Wielton, has observed a positive trend in increasing sales of semi-trailers and trailers throughout the country.

After last year’s pandemic slowdown in the industry, according to Wielton, April’s results show an upward trend.

It is also optimistic that, in accordance with the assumptions of the sales recovery plan in Poland, Wielton’s results are growing not only year to year, but also month to month.

Wielton entered 2021 with ambitious plans and clearly defined goals. The results achieved in the following months of this year show that, like the entire market of trailers and semi-trailers, the company is constantly strengthening its position, reducing the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

The decision to use the lockdown time to modernise the plant in Wieluń also turned out to be right, which resulted in an increase in production efficiency and profitability.

These activities are reported to be of key importance due to the production of products and their components for the domestic market and for foreign plants belonging to the Wielton Group.

“The record-breaking recovery on the trailer and semi-trailer market in Poland has been going on for another month in a row,” said Piotr Kuś, General Director, Vice President of the Management Board of Wielton SA.

“Currently, our goal is to focus on the implementation of the plan to increase sales volume, effective order fulfilment and rebuilding shares in Poland. We assumed that we are aiming for 44 per cent year-on-year growth in 2021. We intend to achieve this plan in a stable and sustainable manner.

“By analysing the data of the Polish Automotive Industry Association, we can assess that each month we are getting closer to achieving ambitious goals, thanks to the effective use of the demand on the domestic market.”

Wielton General Director, Piotr Kuś, said the company recorded an almost four-fold increase in the number of registrations of new trailers and semi-trailers.

“We should remember, however, that last year was extremely specific, and therefore it eludes frames and comparisons,” he said.

“For this reason, it is crucial for us to confront the number of registrations in the coming months. Comparing March and April this year, we recorded an increase of 1.2 per cent. This result places us on the podium on the Polish market and shows the systematic rebuilding of our position. It is also very important for us that we have again become the leader in the subcategory of tippers, with a total number of 1,110 vehicles, including 173 vehicles under the Wielton brand, which means an increase of 73 per cent. After the extremely difficult 2020, we can see that we can look into the future more and more boldly.”

Wielton doubled its sales in the Polish market last month.
