Bromma reports growth in spreader sales and orders in H1 2018

Strong order intake, in line with signals from other industry sources, signals a positive outlook for the future, stated the company, adding that its market position has been maintained at a very high level in general, but with geographical variations.


The North American market has continued to be strong and in this market Bromma is defending a very high market share. Asia Pacific is the other region where order intake is running significantly higher than last year and is exceeding Bromma’s own expectations.

“It is obvious that there is a level of optimism in the industry today," said Lars Meurling, Bromma’s Marketing Director. "I hear it in conferences I have attended recently, I read it in available market data and I see it in our order intake.


“The replacement market is starting to contribute significantly to the orders and the available market for us. We have been forecasting this for some time now and are well prepared to support our customers when the need arises."


Larger orders received in H1 2018 include:
