Zurich, October 15, 2021 - For the last six consecutive quarters, Bystronic increased the order intake of the continuing operations based on positive momentum in the industry and strong business development. In the first nine months of 2021, order intake grew by 61.3% to CHF 864.3 million and net sales by 15.9% to CHF 656.8 million. All regions and product categories performed well and contributed to growth. In line with the Strategy 2025, Bystronic grew sales from the service business overproportionally. Increased demand on procurement markets and limited shipping capacities impacted the performance in the third quarter.

Under the assumption that global supply chain constraints do not further accentuate, Bystronic expects sales growth for its continuing operations of around 15% in the 2021 financial year, with an EBIT margin of 8 to 9%.


With the divestments of FoamPartner as part of the Chemical Specialities business unit at the end of March 2021 and the Mammut business unit as of June 30, 2021, Bystronic has successfully completed its transformation. FoamPartner contributed sales of CHF 76.3 million in the first quarter of 2021 and Mammut CHF 107.3 million for the first half of 2021.
