Presentation of the group new roadmap “New Horizons 2025”
The upheavals caused by the health crisis of 2020 have deeply impacted all economic players and markets. New stakes are challenging global priorities and, as a result, those of the Manitou Group. Impacted by these transformations, the group is presenting today its new roadmap by 2025:
The "New Horizons 2025" plan is built around 4 orientations:
- Exceed customer expectations with value-added services,
- Drive the green transition for a sustainable business model,
- Boost performance with streamlined operations,
- Build our success on one united team,
with DATA as a game changer and innovation as our DNA.
On the basis of this new Plan, the Manitou Group has set itself the objective of achieving the following by 2025:
- Revenues of more than 2.5 billion euros
- A recurring operating profit of more than 8% of sales
- Recurring EBITDA* of more than 10% of sales.
In addition, the Manitou Group expects to invest around €460 million over the duration of the plan.
All of these objectives are defined excluding acquisitions and assuming market conditions are not impacted by any new major or structural crisis.
Throughout the year, the Group focused on protecting its employees, adapting its operations, optimizing customer relations and its financial performance. We start the year 2021, reorganized and reshaped, with a new roadmap "New Horizons 2025" full of ambitions and challenges.
