Ruthmann has reported record order receipt for the first two months of 2011, a phenomenon it attributes to a successful Bauma 2010 and the new TB 270 and TBR 200 models.

The German manufacturer reported €50 million in sales in 2010 exceeding the company's expectations and targets.

Managing director, Rolf Kulawik said, "We are very satisfied with the level of success we have achieved. These latest results can mostly be attributed to the many orders we received at the BAUMA 2010 trade show in Munich and to our core German market. We clearly hit a home run in the 3.5t (GVW) sector with our TB 270 and TBR 200 models. These figures also reflect the degree of trust and confidence that our customers have placed in us. Our municipality business picked up unexpectedly and our export market also improved substantially towards the end of the year, matching that of former times. We were also very encouraged by the significant gains made in our service division."

This year Ruthmann will be another new model: the T 330, described as the best STEIGER ever on a 7.5t chassis, will be making its world debut at CEMAT trade show held in Hannover, Germany from May 2nd to May 6th.

Authorised officer, Uwe Strotman said, "We intend to move our customers forward with our powerful new machinery and expect foreign demand to increase as much as it has here in Germany. Evidence suggests that we are well on our way to achieving this goal.

"Ruthmann will be boosting investment in both human resources and technology at our Gescher, Germany location in 2011. This will enable Ruthmann to expand its leading position."
