Boysen hits new high for exhaust production

Despite various gloomy forecasts by economic analysts, Boysen has said that it expects to record a second record-breaking year in succession, with the exhaust technology specialist increasing sales in 2011 by 20% to just over USD$1.2 billion.

“Previously, 2010 was by far the best year in the history of our company,” said a delighted Rolf Geisel, Boysen president. “In the meantime, it seems likely that we will once again significantly surpass the good results of the previous year in 2011.”

In 2010 Boysen’s announced that its total sales grew to just over USD$1 billion, a 45% increase compared to how the company performed in 2008, when the financial global meltdown hit the automotive industry.

With such growth, Boysen has increased investment back into the company from USD$62 million in 2010 to just over USD$108 million in 2011, with most that outlay going to the supplier’s Turmfeld III production plant. The number of employees also went up during the last year, from 1,780 to 1,850.

However, despite such momentum, Geisel has said that he expects a modest rise in sales of less than 5% for 2012, primarily due to changes in OEM product cycles. He added that for next year, falling production volumes in exhaust systems for six-cylinder engines will not be entirely compensated for by new orders in the four-cylinder sector, and it will be 2013 before the company is able to make up for this decrease by the introduction of new products for commercial vehicles.
