German high-tech company TRUMPF releases preliminary figures for fiscal 2021/22: sales revenue of 4.2 billion represents significant increase over previous year // Order intake rises from 3.9 to 5.6 billion euros despite pandemic and global uncertainty // Netherlands, US and Germany are best-performing markets
TRUMPF reports strong order book and increased sales
Ditzingen, Germany, July 21, 2022 – The TRUMPF Group closed its 2021/22 fiscal year on June 30, 2022, with a significant increase in sales. According to preliminary calculations, sales amounted to 4.2 billion euros, up from 3.5 billion euros in fiscal 2020/21.
The Netherlands is now the company’s best-performing market with sales of around 840 million euros. This is due to the growth in the TRUMPF Group’s EUV business with Dutch technology company ASML. The company’s second-biggest market is the US with sales of around 655 million euros, followed by Germany with sales of approximately 590 million euros.
High-tech company TRUMPF has also entered the new fiscal year with a bulging order book. Order intake rose by 42 percent to some 5.6 billion euros, up from 3.9 billion euros in fiscal 2020/21.
“The global disruption to supply chains clearly affected our sales,” says TRUMPF CEO Nicola Leibinger-Kammüller. “Despite a high order backlog, we ended up making fewer machines and laser systems than we could have done due to the ongoing shortages in semiconductor and electronic components. But the strong economic momentum we’re seeing in the US and across Europe is encouraging, and we’re now benefiting from a growing demand for e-mobility solutions and for technology in other areas. We're entering the new fiscal year with robust order books, but the disruptions and uncertainty in global supply chains are likely to continue for some time.”
The Group’s headcount has now risen to around 16,500, including some 8,400 employees in Germany as of June 30, 2022, approximately 4,900 of whom work at the company’s headquarters in Ditzingen.
