Germany: Claudius Peters’ 2020 sales were Euro80.2m, down by 19% year-on-year from Euro98.8m in 2019. The company recorded a ‘small profit’ compared to a loss in 2019. It said that it started the year with a historically low order book. This was compounded by the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Despite this, the supplier exceeded targets in China, Romania and the US.
The company said, “Order intake is currently looking much more promising than a year ago with several major projects, delayed due to the pandemic, coming into the decision phase during the first quarter of 2021. With an operational overhaul now well under way, the future for Claudius Peters is looking more positive.”
