French access and telehandler manufacturer Haulotte returned to profit in 2012 and, though the first quarter of 2013 is down year-on-year, CEO Alexandre Saubot remains confident about continued growth this year.

“We achieved a decent performance in 2012 with almost 16% growth,” said Saubot. “2013 will remain a challenge for us, we will have to continue to work hard for sales growth.”

Latin American markets showed the strongest recovery last year, led by Brazil, with sales up 76% in the region. This was followed by North America, up 27%, Asia Pacific gaining 24% and Europe recovering to 5.3% growth.

Saubot admitted that sales in the first quarter are down 5% on last year but he said this related to a number of large deals, which have been moved to the second quarter.

“Quarter two will be key and Bauma is definitely one the key events of the year,” he said.
