Idrobase Group's turnover in the first half of 2012 is € 4.1
million, that is a +11% over the same period of 2011. A figure greater than the
company's expectations: considering the prolonged recession, the estimates
had been more conservative. Going into details of this business outcome, it
is interesting to underline that the accessories that can repair any type of
high pressure washers scored the best result compared to the machines. It’s a
sign of the difficulty of the market that prefers to "repair"
rather than choosing new machines.
It is even more significant to highlight and break down the sales trend of Idrobase Group, a company which is strategically export-oriented. Among the 83 countries where the customers of the first half of 2012 are distributed, 52.4% (+8%) of the total are outside the EEC. The EEC countries rapidly advanced, representing 24.1% (+ 27%) of the cake. The only market which shows an opposite trend is the Italian market with 23.5% (-11%). The first is the Russian market.
In Europe especially Poland, Bulgaria and Hungary are growing, while for the non-EEC countries the most important development in terms of results touches three continents: Iran, Argentina, Australia, China.
