JURA Elektroapparate AG, which is based in Niederbuchsiten, Switzerland, maintained its successful growth trajectory in the 2018 financial year. With revenue totalling CHF 515.9 million, the company broke through the half-billion mark for the first time. This represents an increase of 7.5 % compared to the previous year. In terms of unit sales, JURA sold 380 000 automatic speciality coffee machines – 14 000 more than in 2017, corresponding to an increase of 3.8 %. ‘In the domestic segment, growth was fuelled by the launch of the new ENA 8 and by our extremely popular S8 model while, in the professional segment, the global market launch of the new X8 played a key role,’ explained CEO Emanuel Probst at today’s press conference at JURA’s headquarters. JURA saw particularly strong growth in Europe, North America and Australia. ‘The signs are good for this year as well,’ he added. ‘With a clear focus on product innovations and the global implementation of our Premium POS strategy, we are aiming to sell 400 000 coffee machines.’
