Trumpf's CEO Nicola Leibinger-Kammüller is cautiously optimistic: “In many markets, we exceeded our targets, with an equal contribution from all our products. But we know that the current investment climate has been influenced by external factors such as the euro exchange rate and raw materials prices.”

She also statet, that Trumpf invested a lot during the last year: The company drove forward its digital business platform, and also expanded its locations in Germany and abroad, including the United States. According to Trumpf's CEO, America is an important market for Trumpf, regardless of political changes: “Clearly there are political differences between Germany and the U.S. at the moment, and that makes it all the more important that we give our American customers a clear signal that we see the U.S. as one of the main markets for digital production,” said Leibinger-Kammüller.
