Bühler is well on track01/17/2012 Uzwil – The Bühler Technology Group performed well once again in 2011, with an order intake of CHF 2230 million. This translates into organic growth of 9% in local currencies. Sales (turnover) in local currencies rose by an even stronger 17% to CHF 2130 million. Above all, the Advanced Materials and Grain Processing divisions were able to significantly grow their new order intake in local currencies (+35% and +11% respectively), while the Food Processing division was largely able to maintain its level of new orders. The increase is primarily due to Asia, but Europe and South American also developed well.
Advanced Materials also reported the strongest turnover growth (+35% in local currencies) thanks to the positive development of the automotive industry. The Grain Processing and Food Processing divi-sions also succeeded in gaining new market share, up by 18% each in local currencies.
