Technical Services and Prints performed well; Food Systems broadly good. Aerospace result strongly reduced. For Aerospace Industries, the dark clouds have certainly not yet cleared away. Given the situation with the Airbus A380 and the NH90 helicopter, Aerospace Industries is set to make a negative contribution to the results for 2007. Only in the course of 2008 but more likely in 2009 will this situation improve markedly, once these programmes are back up to speed. For Stork as a whole, the World Class Performance programme will contribute over the coming years to continuous improvement of results. The first projects have been launched and are showing clear improvement potential." Press information: Stork N.V.
