German motorhome manufacturer Knaus Tabbert has announced increased sales for 2014 and a storming start to 2015, despite many European markets remaining flat.

Turnover for the company increased by 8.4 percent to €297 million. Sales Manager, Gerd Adamietzki, said, "Additional growth could be generated especially, but not only, in the camper van and motorhome segment.” With about 13,000 vehicles produced, up 7.4% compared to 2013, Knaus Tabbert claims to hold leading positions in registration statistics in Germany and Europe. "In the German statistics of the CIVD for the last 12 months we hold the first place in registrations in the motorhome and camper van segment with a 12.4% market share. Among the 10 strongest market participants in Germany we furthermore have the strongest growth rate with 27.5% in the last 12 months,” continued Adamietzki.

The first quarter of the new business year 2015 also exceeded the targets of Knaus Tabbert. Spurred on by stable markets in Europe the company was able to gain further market shares with about 3,500 sold units and increase its sales target by 18.3%. Even though the first quarter of 2014 saw strong sales, it was again was exceeded by 17.9% with a turnover of about €82 million in the first quarter of 2015. Sales for 2015 in total were expected to increase by 12.8%

Knauss Tabbert HQ"The company with its employees managed to positively distance itself from the market trend and generate a growth that was a positive surprise for the stakeholders also with respect to the generated result. We all are highly satisfied, and the positive course of the first five months in 2015 also confirms our model policy and corporate strategy", said Chairman, Wolfgang Speck summarising the positive development.

"The discontinuation of the WILK and Bavaria Camp brands in our product portfolio, the closing of the plant in Obermeitingen, and the modernisation of our Tabbert plant in Mottgers have clearly and sustainably improved our cost structure", said Werner Vaterl, as Manager of Knaus Tabbert GmbH, responsible for production as well as research, development and construction. "With the modular system of our future product developments we successively will generate further cost advantages for us."
