With a turnover of 20.8 million lats (29.7 million euros), wood-processing equipment retailer Contiplus Riga was the leading company in Latvia’s industrial equipment sales industry, according to the Latvian Business Report 2012 collated by Latvijas Talrunis, Firmas.lv and Nozare.lv. The other top ten industrial equipment sellers in Latvia last year were Intrac Latvija with 14.2 million lats in turnover, Wiktraktor - 10.4 million lats, Husqvarna Latvija - 6.6 million lats, Toyota Material Handling Baltic - 5.7 million lats, Ecotechno Baltic - 4.4 million lats, Doka Latvia - 4.1 million lats, Infleks - 4.1 million lats, Swecon - 4.0 million lats, and Takama - 3.5 million lats. Compared to 2010, the Latvian industrial equipment sales market grew on average 30 percent in 2011. The growth of past two years can be explained by the preceding two years of recession. The volume of spare part sales in Latvia is the largest in the Baltic States, indicating that outdated and poor quality equipment is repeatedly repaired.
