AUGSBURG, Germany—December 2, 2015—The global market leader for webfed offset presses, manroland web systems, took a successful turn in 2015. Sales revenues are expected at about 240 Mio. EUR in total. Order intake for new machines will amount to approximately 140 Mio. EUR and, therefore, represents a significant increase compared to 2014. As a result, the worldwide market share will exceed 40 percent.

Due to the raised order intake level further improved profits are expected for 2016. Our growth is based on market share gains still in a stagnating market environment.
