Successful year 2014 for industrial trucks

The European industrial trucks market had a successful year 2014 with a 9% increase in order intakes. After stagnating in 2013 the Western European market showed double digit growth largely due to healthy demand in Germany and the UK and a continued recovery in Spain and Italy. Overall demand in Eastern Europe was flat though the significant decline in Russia offset the good development in other regional markets, such as Poland and the Czech Republic. All across Europe warehouse pedestrian trucks and electric counterbalanced trucks were the key drivers of growth.
