Von Roll Holding AG: production site optimization and closure of the Düren
plant (Germany)

Au/Wädenswil, 28 October 2014 - As part of the announced strategy and the
associated optimization of production sites, Von Roll Holding AG plans to
close the plant in Düren (Germany) in the second half of 2015.

The Düren plant employs around 120 staff members. Due to the
reorganization, several products will be manufactured at other sites. The
molded parts product range is to be discontinued when the plant closes.

All associated, entire restructuring expenses have already been charged to
the current financial year, 2014. Overall, Von Roll is expecting an
exceptional cost burden of around CHF 14 million for 2014 due to these
effects.

By consolidating the plants, we are adjusting the necessary capacity in
line with demand, which will enable us to utilize production resources
sustainably at our sites. This will increase production efficiency and make
us more competitive.
