2009 A year packed with questions
The global economic downturn has of course also paid a visit to the German track construction industry. 2009 is likely to see a fall in turnover. The company does however foresee a positive company result at the end of this year thanks to its wide product range and diverse overseas activities. That is why the company plans to invest in further takeovers.
2008 showed that small and flexible stakes in companies like RIO, BSL, and SBR can achieve good results on the market if a lean structure is warranted.

2008 marked a successful year in Romania
2008 was the most successful year since the start of construction activities in Romania in 2002. Between 2003-2007 work on 40 kms of intra-urban track construction commenced in Timisoara; more than 5 million €/p.a. of turnover were generated. Turnover figures for the projects in Iasi and Bucharest rose to more then 20 million Euros in 2008. Orders on hand in 2009 already add up to more than 10 million Euros, this could therefore result in another successful year.
