Speech at the 121st Annual General Meeting
2022 was a year with TOP performance for DMG MORI AG. At the same time, 2022 was a year of major geopolitical challenges with worldwide supply and material shortages, high raw material, energy and transport costs, rising interest and inflation rates, but also the ongoing corona pandemic and above all the Russian war in Ukraine.
DMG MORI AG was able to reinforce and partly further expand its market position worldwide under again more difficult conditions and achieve a very successful financial year 2022. Thanks to the consistent implementation of our strategic focus on automation, digitization and sustainability, we were able to reach and in some parts exceed the forecasts that were increased during the course of the year.
