Business result for the 2013/2014 financial year
During the past financial year (April 2013 to March 2014), the Linz-based KEBA Group generated sales revenues of EUR 181 million.
This represented an increase of 21 per cent from EUR 150.1 million to EUR 181.4 million. Half of this growth emanated from standard business, while the remainder derived from the acquisition of the Dutch automation company DELEM B.V.
As Gerhard Luftensteiner, the KEBA AG CEO explained at today''s press conference in Linz: “This increase in sales revenues can be traced to an excellent positioning in the Industrial Automation Business Area and further market share gains in Banking Automation. With our robotic developments, particularly the all-in-one controls for robot guidance, we have attracted international attention and established a new benchmark.”
The export quota rose to 81.5 per cent. Around 60 per cent of exports went to the EU (excluding Austria) and 21.5 per cent to the rest of the world.
Investments in research and development were raised from EUR 24.3 million to
EUR 29.4 million.
Average growth in the past three years has amounted to 18 per cent (EUR 130, 150, 181 m respectively).
At present KEBA employs a workforce of around 900 employees worldwide (excluding the CBPM-KEBA joint venture).
