Financial year 2023:
Sales at prior-year level with decline in market momentum
Demand for Bucher Industries’ products and services declined in line with the general economic slowdown, and order intake normalised. Sales remained on a par with the prior-year level, with capacity utilisation lower in the second half of the year. The operating profit margin and the profit for the year are expected to be slightly above the high prior-year figures.

Frank Mühlon has been appointed as the new division president of Bucher Hydraulics and member of group management as of 1 July 2024. He succeeds Daniel Waller, who is stepping down after 20 very successful years in this position.
First half-year 2023: Further increase in sales and sig­nif­i­cant rise in operating profit
Demand for the products and services of Bucher Industries declined in the first half of 2023 from an extremely high level in 2022 in line with the general economic slowdown. The Group’s order intake declined in all divisions except Bucher Emhart Glass and Bucher Specials, which maintained the level of the prior year. Sales again rose significantly. The operating profit margin exceeded the prior year’s very good level. The Group’s profit for the period also increased significantly.
Financial year 2022:
Strong business result in 2022
Demand for Bucher Industries’ products and services normalised at a very high level during the reporting period. Thanks to the employees’ hard work, the divisions again coped very well with the difficulties in the supply chain and increased sales by 13%. The operating profit margin rose to a very good 11.8%. Profit for the year amounted to CHF 335 million, significantly higher than the previous year, and earnings per share were a high CHF 32.36. The board of directors proposes a dividend of CHF 13.00 per share.
Financial year 2022:
Pleasing performance in a challenging environment
Demand for Bucher Industries’ products and services normalised at a very high level over the course of 2022. Sales again increased significantly, despite continuing challenges in procurement and personnel. The operating profit margin is likely to exceed the previous year’s high figure. Profit for the year should be substantially higher than in the previous year.
New member of the board of directors
The board of directors of Bucher Industries proposes that the annual general meeting on 19 April 2023 elect Urs Kaufmann as a new board member. Urs Kaufmann will also be proposed to the annual general meeting in 2024 as chairman of the board of directors and nominated as successor to Philip Mosimann.
First half-year 2022: Good result with a marked increase in sales
Bucher Industries’ products and services continued to be in high demand in the first half of 2022. As a result, order intake increased further.
