Record sales despite weaker demand in 2019

For Bucher Industries, 2019 was a year defined by a challenging market environment. Demand declined overall, albeit from a very high level. Thanks to the exceptionally strong order book at the beginning of the reporting period and a significant increase at Bucher Emhart Glass, sales rose again slightly over the very strong previous year. The Group expects operating profit for the reporting period to fall just slightly short of the good result achieved in 2018. The Group’s profit for the year is expected to be on a par with that of the previous year.
