KRAIBURG Austria Registers Growth in 2021

Mayrhofer and Duex

KRAIBURG Austria has reported pleasing growth during 2021 including a 13% increase in turnover to 75.5 million Euro.

Growth in Both Hot and Cold Sectors

Both hot cured compounds as well as the precured retreads K_base, K_plus and K_tech achieved a consi­derable sales and turnover plus, with high-performance compounds in the hot segment recording an overproportionally strong development, said the company in a statement. The growth, said KRAIBURG, was achieved not only in the company’s key market of Germany, but also in Southern Europe (Italy, Spain), in Central Europe (Bosnia, Bul­garia, Croatia, Poland) and Scandinavia (Sweden).

“Against the background of the demanding logistics situation, the limited availability of raw materials, the exploding energy costs as well as the gene­ral pandemic-related restrictions, we are more than pleased with the result,” commented Stefan Mayrhofer, Managing Director of KRAIBURG Austria. “We will continue to keep a watchful eye on all developments and challenges in 2022.”

“The demand for retread tyres is still good,” added Holger Düx, Sales Manager at KRAIBURG Austria. “This is due to delivery bottlenecks and the fact that the availability of cheap Asian tyres on the one hand and certain new tyre models on the other hand is still reduced. Our goal is to win new users of KRAIBURG quality tyres as regular customers.”
