Head’s German subsidiary saw sales increase by 6.6 percent to €39 million. What is interesting to note here, is that the Austrian firm saw stronger growth in its snow sports goods than its other products – and this, despite a poor winter. According to Head’s in-company information, winter sports goods were up by 11 percent and reached sales of €19 million. When it comes to the current year however, Head Germany is cautious about predicting outstanding figures: The winter season has been poor so far. Pre-orders for snow sports items are on a par with last year. Summer orders have increased by 7.5 percent, in large part thanks to good levels of demand for racket sports equipment.
