Germany-based casting resin and foam specialist Rampf says the 2010/2011 financial year was the company’s most successfully since 1980, and predicts consolidated sales of €104.5m. The company says sales grew 46% from 2009/2010 figures and were up 15% from the previous peak in 2007/2008. Sales within Germany totalled €41.4m, while sales to international market were €61.3m. “The international markets are hugely important for us, with international business accounting for around 60% of our total sales,” says spokesperson Michael Rampf. “In the US in particular we recorded strong growth during the crisis.” The company also has sites in China and Japan. Rampf said it survived the economic crisis by freezing investments and cutting salaries by 5-10%.
