2002 was the best year ever in Rosenbauer’s 137-year history. The
preliminary figures for the 2002 financial year show a year-on-year
increase of 9 % in revenues, taking the total to EUR 297 m (2001: EUR
273.7 m). EBT (earnings before tax) trebled, soaring from EUR 5.1 m
to EUR 15.6 m and yet again surpassing the previous forecast (EUR 13
This massive improvement over the previous year’s result is due to
the successful turnaround of the German Metz Group, the restructuring
and rationalisation measures undertaken at the Austrian production
facilities and good results of the Group’s subsidiaries in the USA
and Spain.
At EUR 319.1 m (2001: EUR 354.0 m), the value of new orders received
by the Group in 2002 was higher than the revenues for that entire
year. This means a high level of capacity utilisation at the Group’s
main production facilities.
The final figures for the 2002 financial year are to be announced on
April 25, 2003.
