- In the list of the top European machine tool
manufacturers with regard to machine tools in the sheet metal
fabrication and forming technology sectors, TRUMPF is way out in
front as the clear leader. This was the result of a ranking carried
out by the German weekly magazine PRODUKTION that was published in
its April 26, 2001 edition.
"After outstanding annual growth rates in past years, the
Ditzingen company achieved sales in fiscal 1999/2000 (30.6) of
roughly 892.5 million Euros, equivalent to a 20-percent rise on the
previous year" - thus runs the magazine's title story on the TRUMPF
Group, which is headquartered in Ditzingen, Germany.
TRUMPF is a leading manufacturer of machine tools for flexible
sheet metal and material fabrication. Its core activities include
machines for punching, nibbling and forming, for laser cutting,
combination processing, bending and water jet cutting. Furthermore
the company is world market leader for laser processing systems and
lasers for industrial production. With nearly 40 subsidiaries and
holdings, the group of companies maintains a presence in almost all
countries of Europe, North and South America, and also Asia.
Worldwide, TRUMPF has over 5000 employees.
This is the first time that the German magazine has drawn up a
ranking for machine tools in the sheet metal fabrication and forming
technology sectors. Part of its aim is to throw light on market
activity in Europe. With this ranking, in which companies' annual
sales play a decisive role, PRODUKTION magazine says it wants to
contribute toward "objectivizing, analyzing and assessing market
activity - it's like holding up a mirror to the whole sector once
