Cargotec's CEO Mika Vehviläinen: Strong growth in orders received continued
Our development continued to be strong in terms of orders received during the third quarter of 2018. Orders received grew in all of our business areas. The development was especially favourable in Kalmar, where the orders received were 38 percent higher than in the comparison period. Also our sales grew in all business areas, supported by the good order intake. Cargotec's third quarter operating profit excluding restructuring costs remained at the comparison period's level despite Hiab's operating profit declining by almost one third. The decline in Hiab's operating profit was mainly caused by the weakening of the US dollar compared to the euro, product mix, additional costs related to supply chain, as well as investments in sales and service capabilities and digitalisation.
During the third quarter, Hiab entered into an agreement to acquire the Effer loader cranes business. Founded in 1965, Effer has over 50 years' experience in developing and manufacturing knuckle-boom cranes. With the acquisition of Effer, Hiab will complement its loader cranes portfolio and expand its range of heavy cranes, in particular in the over 100 metric tonne segment, in which Effer is recognised as a global leader.
During the third quarter, Scott Phillips was appointed President of Hiab and a member of the Cargotec Executive Board. He has extensive experience in various global leadership positions in the construction and mining industries. Roland Sundén, who had been managing Hiab successfully since 2014, took up a corporate development role in Cargotec as of 1 October 2018, continuing as a member of the Cargotec Executive Board until the end of 2018. I would like to thank Roland warmly for the excellent work in lifting Hiab's sales and profitability to a new level.
In September, we announced our refined strategy for 2019-2021. Together with our business areas, we will continue to work towards our vision "Becoming the global leader in intelligent cargo handling". As customer needs change, we will focus even more on the total lifecycle and comprehensive solutions. Our strategy will ensure profitable growth by focusing on customer centricity, services, digitalisation and productivity. Kalmar, Hiab and MacGregor share Cargotec's must-win battles, while also having their own specific focus areas. Leadership - a must-win battle during the strategy period 2015-2018 - is still fundamentally important to the company, and it is a cornerstone for all our operations also in the future. We are committed to achieving our financial targets announced in 2017.
