Highlights 2016

Performance 2016

In 2016, Bühler showed an ongoing healthy performance. Order intake increased substantially and turnover grew markedly. Profitability remained stable despite challenging market conditions such as volatile currencies, low raw material prices for oil and wheat, and political turmoil in many regions. The service business showed more-than-proportional growth. The Group continued to strongly reinvest its cash into strategic applications and markets.
