Dear colleagues, customers and business partners
Bühler developed favorably in 2017 thanks to substantial organic growth. Order intake increased by 10% to CHF 2.80 billion and turnover rose by 9% to CHF 2.67 billion.
For us, growth is not an end in itself. Instead, we view it as a genuine sign that our customers and the markets have responded positively to our mission of creating sustainable value. We have focused our efforts on achieving 30% less energy and waste in our customers' process solutions –
this is the target we set ourselves for 2020. We are fully aware that we have taken on a significant challenge.
