Schwarzmüller turns over more than €400M

The Schwarzmüller Group achieved sales of €409 million in 2021, compared to €366 million euros in 2020 (up 13 per cent).

The number of trailers the OEM produced increased from 8,800 in 2020 to 9,966 (up 12 per cent).

“Despite the ongoing pandemic and volatile market conditions, we have managed to break through a barrier in terms of turnover,” said Schwarzmüller Group CEO, Roland Hartwig.

For the current year, Schwarzmüller has budgeted for a turnover of €460 million. However, this forecast is subject to the proviso that the geopolitical events in Ukraine cannot yet be evaluated. The supply of material and components as well as the price situation are still viewed as tense and subject to major fluctuations.

According to Hartwig, with these sales figures and after the minimal increase in sales in 2020, the first year of the pandemic, it was possible to return to a double-digit growth trajectory that the company has enjoyed for almost 10 years.

In 2021, 13,555 orders were received, which was 68 per cent more than in 2020 (8,053 incoming orders). The starting point for this boom was the investment backlog after the first year of the pandemic, said Hartwig. In addition, there was a trend in investments being made ahead of schedule, prompted by the incentives in place in some EU countries.

In other news, a new supply chain has been established which involves transporting new Schwarzmüller trailers from the plant to the port.
