PALFINGER AG / Outstanding 1st quarter 2024 / Earnings forecast for 2024 as a whole significantly lower than record year 2023


At today’s adjustment meeting of global production capacities and procurement volumes, PALFINGER’s management decided to reduce production levels due to continuing low order intake in the core region EMEA.  As a result of this decision, a slight drop in revenue is expected for 2024 as a whole compared to 2023, as is EBIT 20 percent below that of record year 2023 (EBIT 210.2 million).

Due to the high volume of billing in the last days of March 2024, PALFINGER’s management expects earnings for Q1/2024 significantly higher than the same period of the previous year (EBIT Q1/2023: EUR 48.9 million).


PALFINGER is an international technology and mechanical engineering company and the world’s leading producer and provider of innovative crane and lifting solutions. With around 12,700 employees (without contract workers), 30 manufacturing sites and a worldwide sales and service network of around 5,000 service points, PALFINGER creates added value from the challenges of its customers. PALFINGER is consistently continuing on its course as a provider of innovative, complete solutions that deliver increased efficiency and better operability, while leveraging the potential of digitalization along the entire production and value chain.

PALFINGER AG has been listed on the Vienna stock exchange since 1999, and in 2023 achieved record revenue of EUR 2.45 billion.
