After the low point of the pan-European crisis, a revival will follow in 2013 and 2014. The work stock is up to standard and the intake of orders is increasing successively. After years of cutbacks, transport companies are ready to replace their rolling stock. Investments in product innovation, even in times of crisis, are yielding positive results. In 2013, the newest showpiece, the PXE low-loader with 9 axle lines, turned out to be a bull’s eye. The prominent position in transport solutions for wind turbines is also proving valuable. In 2015 Nooteboom will introduce the Manoovr semi low-loader at the Bedrijfsauto RAI in Amsterdam. With this groundbreaking innovation, Nooteboom wins numerous international innovation awards. In the years that followed, several innovations followed, including the Longrunner, the largest 4bed6 Euro-PX low-loader and the lightweight extendable wheel wells semi low-loader. In addition to product innovation, process innovation is also playing an increasingly prominent role and the first robots are entering the company. Efficient business operations and optimization of the production process are important areas for attention. Despite the corona pandemic, Nooteboom is able to close 2020 with a good result and the order book is very well filled. In order to meet the increasing international demand for Nooteboom vehicles, production capacity will be further increased in 2021.
