In a statement on Friday, the company said new orders had risen by 18 per cent to SFr1.85 billion – compared to 1999.

The company gave no profit figures or outlook for the coming year, ahead of a news conference scheduled for March 20.

Von Roll was restructured in 1994 to focus on its core business. The company has divided its worldwide activities into three divisions: environmental technology, engineering and electrical insulation systems.
