Strong development for INTRAC after sales
The global financial crisis which hit the Baltic’s in summer 2008 continued to hamper the INTRAC countries also during 2009. For INTRAC the sectors hardest hit were sales of road building equipment besides machines for earthmoving and construction businesses. On the other hand sales of bio-energy chippers even rose to an all-time high, albeit accounting only for a quite limited number of sold machines. Sales in eastern Poland continued to develop in a positive way and although still below the medium term expectations, the achieved 2009 sales ended close to the turnover of the well established INTRAC companies in Latvia and Estonia.
