In the 1st quarter of 2016 Haulotte Group achieved consolidated sales of € 115.0 million, an increase of + 17% against € 98.2 million for the same period of the previous year. Currency effects are not material in this period.
Equipment sales were up 19% mainly in Europe (+30%), and North America (+35%) which maintains the trend observed in 2015. The Asia-Pacific area is down 19% due to the slowdown in the Middle-East. Latin America (-6%) continues to be impacted by the situation in Brazil albeit to a lower extent.
