Successful Close to 2023 – Cautious Outlook for 2024

2023 was a successful year for machine builder Flottweg thanks to satisfactory financial results. With an increase in revenue of more than 5% to 298 million euros, the 2023 financial year was positive. Nevertheless, the separation technology specialist is looking to the future with caution due to the tense geopolitical situation in Europe and the economic challenges in many target markets.

“We would like to thank all employees who have worked together over the past year to achieve Flottweg’s success. The figures confirm the commitment and cohesion within the team,” explains Chairman of the Management Board Dr. Kersten Link. “External factors, such as the weakening global economy and rising interest rates, are delaying our customers’ investment decisions and could have an impact on business development this year. This situation requires a forward-looking approach. Flottweg is well prepared to react flexibly to changes and to take advantage of opportunities that may arise in this dynamic time.”

Export Remains Highly Relevant

In 2023, nearly 86% of all revenue was once again generated abroad.

Flottweg currently employs 1,237 people worldwide, and in Vilsbiburg, there are almost 960 employees, including 60 trainees.


Flottweg Thailand as the New Subsidiary
