Forecasts for 2020
As with many other companies, Tadano has abandoned all efforts at forecasting results for this year, due to the gross uncertainties over the Covid-19 pandemic.
These numbers are probably slightly better than many expected, following the take over and absorption of Demag. However the company has yet to publish its ‘Comprehensive’ results which usually yields a little more information and some comment. We will update this is we learn more at that time.
