The Doppelmayr Group closes a financial year that saw a host of innovations. In comparison with the previous year, sales revenues for 2016/2017 showed a slight drop of 4%, but at 801 million euros nonetheless remained at a high level. Numerous projects and developments were pioneering in the ropeway sector and confirm the Doppelmayr Group’s position as market leader. Alongside the market launch of a new ropeway control system and market penetration with the D-Line, milestones achieved during the last financial year include other projects boasting world records and world firsts. In order to implement these as well as future projects, the Doppelmayr Group has created almost 50 new jobs worldwide, 38 of them in Austria alone. Another milestone was the completion of the new office in Hohe Brücke, Wolfurt, which 450 employees moved into in June 2017. Doppelmayr is currently looking to recruit some 50 new employees worldwide across a broad range of areas.
