Automotive injection moulder Grammer, based in Germany, said it is continuing to grow despite a “challenging environment”.

The group’s sales increased by 6% from €810m in the first three quarters of 2011 to €859m in the same period this year. Net profit rose by 13% from €16m to €18m, but operating profit fell from €36m to €34m over the same period due to one-time startup costs for new products and weakness in the Brazilian market.

In the third quarter, group revenue rose from €273m in 2011 to €285m in 2012. This was “despite an ongoing cool-down in core markets”, said Grammer.

For 2012 as a whole, Grammer said it is “expecting an overall result on par with last year”.
