DMG MORI starts the year successfully
Bielefeld. With order intake of € 167.6 million and 690 products sold DMG MORI SEIKI AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT takes positive stock of the traditional Open House Exhibition that kicks off the year in Pfronten. The results of the in-house fair that ended on Saturday confirm the growing demand for machine tools.
At the Open House Exhibition in Pfronten from 18-22 February, DMG MORI presented trendsetting innovations and technologies to 6,644 international trade visitors. The main visitor interest fell on CELOS - from the idea to the finished product, the joint new design and the 8 world premieres. In the LASERTEC 65 AdditiveManufacturing, DMG MORI displayed a unique hybrid-machine, which enables both additive and cutting machining. Other main topics were the trends in the fields of automation, aerospace, LifeCycle Services and tool and mould construction.
As a result of the open house exhibition, the DMG MORI SEIKI group recorded 690 products sold at a value of € 167.6 million (previous year: € 150.5 million). The orders confirm the rising demand overall for machine tools.
The DMG MORI SEIKI group was once again able to exceed the € 2 billion mark in order intake in financial year 2013. Orders were slightly above € 2.1 billion. In the first quarter 2014 we are expecting order intake of around € 550 million. On 12 March 2014, the group will publish its figures for financial year 2013.
