Bürstner of Kehl - Company Development Pointing the Way towards the Future

Bürstner, based in Baden and Alsace and with sites in Kehl and Wissembourg, has been able to further stabilise and consolidate its market position over the past twelve months

Kehl/Neumühl, (PresseBox) - In the recently completed previous financial year, the European market has been able to consolidate and is now once again marked by solid growth. In Germany, for example, new registrations of caravans increased 9,9 per cent between September 2015 and June 2016. The situation for new registrations of motorhomes during this period is equally positive. They even recorded an increase of 20,5 per cent. In France too, the trend over twelve months showed an increase of 4,2 per cent for caravans, with new registrations of motorhomes increasing 13.1 per cent. This positive trend is of course also reflected in Bürstner production figures. This meant that original plans for the 2016 season were able to be surpassed. By the end of the season, around 8600 caravans and motorhomes will have been built and sold, around 70 per cent of these motorhomes. Original plans for the 2016 season were for around 7500 units. Annual sales by the end of August 2016 will thus amount to around €300 million. This represents considerable growth in comparison to sales from the previous year (€270 million). For the 2017 season, Bürstner aims to achieve a further significant increase with 9400 recreational vehicles sold.

The two plants currently employ 854 people, including a total of 14 trainees in the commercial department.

Company investments for the upcoming financial year will include a new roof for the production hall. There are also plans to convert all lighting within the company to LED. For this, around 9000 fluorescent lamps are being replaced, leading not only to noticeable savings on electricity but also making a significant contribution to environmental protection. Further important reasons for the planned refurbishment of some buildings are efficiency and environmental protection considerations. This will guarantee that the company, its production facilities and buildings will continue to be state-of-the-art in technological terms.
