„With the PowerCube, we presented a highly innovative product in 2022 that sets new standards in terms of the utilisation of space and flexibility in automated warehousing systems.“
„Our powerful financing ability and solid balance sheet safeguard the implementation of Strategy 2025+ and guarantee the flexibility for further growth.“
„Jungheinrich performed very well in 2022. With new highs in revenue and EBIT, we have proven ourselves to be extremely crisis-proof in a difficult market environment.“
„Together we continuously guaranteed our ability to deliver in 2022 in the face of the adverse conditions affecting the supply chains and secured our position in the market despite massive price hikes.“
Automation is key to the future growth of Jungheinrich.
The automation strategic field of action focuses on mobile robots, as well as automatic warehouse systems and software. One strategically significant example of the progress we are making in the field of automatic warehouse systems is the PowerCube automated compact storage system, which was introduced in 2022.
This field of action is closely linked to the initiatives in the automation field of action.
Our goal for the coming years is to position Jungheinrich in the best possible way for the “digital warehouse of the future”. Our hybrid cloud is the technological linchpin for the digitalisation of our own processes, for interface management with our customers and for the digitalisation of our customers' intralogistics processes.
Electric mobility is one of our core competencies, which we will continue to expand in the energy systems field of action.
Series-produced trucks for intralogistics with lithium-ion batteries have been an established part of our portfolio for more than ten years. We attach strategic importance to material handling equipment with lithium-ion batteries fully integrated into the truck design.
As one of our strategic guiding principles, increasing efficiency runs through all our strategic objectives and initiatives.
The efficiency field of action is aimed at increasing productivity, which we have placed at the centre of your attention. Among other projects, we are currently building a new plant for reach truck production in Czechia.
Our goal is to continue to grow through targeted acquisitions and strategic partnerships.
During the 2022 financial year, we continued to methodically screen and evaluate potential acquisitions and strategic partnerships and signed in January 2023 an agreement to acquire Storage Solutions, a leading provider of solutions for racking systems and warehouse automation in the USA. The acquisition expands our global footprint in this region.
Jungheinrich's corporate strategy is built around the central goal of creating sustainable value.
Projects in the sustainability field of action therefore span all areas of the company and are divided into different strategic initiatives, such as climate neutrality or eco efficiency. The success of our increasingly sustainable alignment is visibly expressed in ratings.
