Erema: Record orders in the 2010/2011 fiscal year

EREMA, the Austrian manufacturer of plastic recycling systems, ended its 2010/2011 fiscal year on 31 March this year once again with record figures: consolidated sales achieved by the EREMA Group - comprising EREMA Engineering Recycling Maschinen und Anlagen Ges.m.b.H., Ansfelden with its subsidiaries Erema North America Inc., located in Ipswich/MA, and 3S-GmbH in Roitham near Gmunden in Austria - reached EUR 95 million for the period from 1 April 2010 to 31 March 2011, reports the company.

Order intake rising from EUR 75 million (2009/2010) to the highest order intake volume of all time at EUR 127 million (2010/2011). This is a new record and, compared to the previous year, not only represents an increase of 70% but also lies 30% above the previous record order intake of 2007/2008.

This success was encouraged on the one hand by the further developments of the plant and process technologies which have improved both customer benefits and the price/performance ratio. Positive market developments plus the associated orders from both existing and many new customers were the second driving force behind this upswing. The number of employees also rose to keep pace with the growth, increasing to 335 as result, comments the manufacturer finally.
