2014 HIGHLIGHTS USING CHALLENGING TIMES TO MAKE COMPANY-WIDE IMPROVEMENTS
Profitability improved despite lower net sales Demand for maintenance services improved
during 2014, the key driver being the sustained strength in the US manufacturing industry. Market environment remained difficult in the new equip-ment business, particularly within process indus-tries and, geographically, in most of the emerging markets. Order intake decreased by 0.9 percent in 2014.
Konecranes order book as of the end of the year stood 9.6 percent higher than in 2013.
Net sales decreased by 4.2 percent compared to 2013 due to Business Area Equipment.
Operating margin before restructuring costs was 5.9 percent of sales. Profitability improved from the previous year thanks to Business Area Service.
Solid performance in Service, Equipment hit by lower sales Net sales in Business Area Service grew by
0.7 percent in 2014. Net sales grew in the Americas as well as India, Middle East and Africa, declining in Europe and Asia-Pacific. Contract base growth continued and was up 10.0 percent year-on-year at the end of 2014. Operating margin before restructuring costs was 10.0 percent of sales. Prof-itability improved due to higher gross margin and the restructuring actions executed in 2013.
Net sales in Business Area Equipment were 8.1 percent lower than in 2013. The decline in net sales was mainly attributable to port cranes and heavy-duty industrial cranes. On the other hand, strong growth continued in the lift truck business. Operating margin before restructuring costs was 3.8 percent of sales. Profitability was burdened by lower sales and costs related to the operations in Ukraine.

Service developed its delivery concepts by intro-ducing new tools and processes and further productized our service offering.
The BOXHUNTER RTG crane, launched in April, was the first product to be launched under the Segment-based Offering initiative. It incorporates innovative and smart features in terms of control and mechanical solutions and is maintenance friendly.
Konecranes unveiled the generation C series of lift trucks at the CeMAT fair in May.
In June, Konecranes completed the acquisition of the remaining shares of Jiangsu Three Horses Crane Manufacture Co. Ltd. (SANMA) and now owns 100 percent of the company.
The CXT UNO overhead crane was launched in September. Designed to serve basic lifting needs, the crane is targeted at small and medium-sized companies as well as larger enterprises that require lifting equipment for more rudimentary applications.
