Stuttgart The laser specialist Trumpf is starting the new financial year with full order books: In 2020/21 (June 30th) incoming orders rose by a fifth to 3.9 billion euros. In the meantime, the family business was able to keep its turnover stable compared to the previous year at 3.5 billion euros.
Trumpf boss Nicola Leibinger-Kammüller explained the figures as follows: “The stable sales and the very good incoming orders result, among other things, from strong economic impulses from China, which come from electronics applications and the demand for our lasers for electromobility.”
The high share of sales in the Netherlands of 460 million euros is particularly noticeable. Behind this is the booming business with the chip supplier ASML. Trumpf supplies the lasers for the most modern lithography machines with extreme ultraviolet light (EUV). ASML has a monopoly with its EUV machines.
