- MKM maintains growth in 2018
- Sales to rise to significantly more than 280,000 tons.
- Strategy of opening up growth markets paying off
With sales of 1.1 bn euros and healthy growth of 23%, MKM is now the fifth largest company in Saxony-Anhalt — thus climbing one place in the rankings. This is the result of an analysis by NORD/LB on the sales growth achieved by companies in Saxony-Anhalt in 2017. The company is also maintaining this growth in 2018: For example, sales volumes by the end of November had already passed the figure for the whole preceding year (270,000 tons) and in 2018 will clearly exceed 280,000 tons. “The investments in productivity have paid off as has the strategy of opening up growth markets such as Renewable Energies and electromobility”, MKM CEO Roland Harings stresses.
