The 12% growth in sales to CHF 101 million in the traditional Von Roll Insulation segment was chiefly driven by the sustained high demand in the short-cycle low-voltage segment. Order intake increased by 10% to CHF 109 million in this segment. Von Roll Composites posted unchanged sales of CHF 28 million, whilst order intake rose by 14% to CHF 33 million. Decrease in sales in the Von Roll Transformers segment of 48% to CHF 13 million is strongly influenced by the weak order intake in the first half of 2010.
