The maxon motor Group looks back on a successful business year 2012. In spite of modest market development, high-commodity prices and the strong Swiss franc, maxon increased its revenue to Sfr360.5m (+6.2%) in comparison to the previous year.
The cash flow remained practically unchanged at CHF 36.9 million. At the end of 2012, the company employed 2,077 employees (+58) in Sachseln (Switzerland), Sexau (Germany), Veszprém (Hungary) and at the new location in Sejong (South Korea).
The investments in research and development, which represent approx. 10% of the total revenue, reached a new record value.
In 2012, maxon introduced a completely new DCX motor and gearhead series, with the option of configuring and ordering motors, gearheads and encoders directly online.
As the market development is currently difficult to predict, maxon is assuming a 2013 revenue similar to 2012.
