The Trumpf Group closed fiscal year 2021/22 on June 30, 2022 with significant sales growth. According to preliminary calculations, the figure is €4.2 billion (fiscal 2020/21: €3.5 billion).
The largest single market is now the Netherlands, with sales of around 840 million euros. This is due to the growing EUV business with the Dutch technology company ASML. The second largest single market is the USA with sales of around 655 million euros, followed by Germany with around 590 million euros.
Trumpf is also starting the new fiscal year with bulging order books: incoming orders rose by 42 percent to around 5.6 billion euros (fiscal 2020/21: 3.9 billion euros).
Nicola Leibinger-Kammüller, CEO of Trumpf, said: “The globally disrupted supply chains are clearly noticeable in our sales. Despite a high order backlog, we were not able to manufacture as many machines and laser systems as would have been possible – we are still feeling the shortage of semiconductor and electronic components. The strong economic impulses from the USA and from all over Europe are encouraging. Among other things, we are also benefiting from the increased demand in the field of electromobility. In the new fiscal year, which we have just started with well-filled order books, the uncertainty in the global supply chains will continue to accompany us for some time.”
The number of employees throughout the Group rose to around 16,500. As of the reporting date of June 30, 2022, there were approximately 8,400 employees in Germany, of which around 4,900 were based at the company’s headquarters in Ditzingen.
