Innovative strength as a growth engine One of the key reasons for Rational’s success is its innovative strength. Of particular note is a groundbreaking new development that will be introduced in the spring. It combines steam, hot air, and microwave technology to prepare large quantities of food faster than ever before. This has potential, especially for large fast-food chains such as McDonald’s, Subway, or KFC. Analysts are optimistic that this innovation could further boost the current estimated revenue growth of around 5%.

Global expansion: Focus on Asia and the USA When it comes to geographical expansion, Rational can boast impressive gains: the company grew by 25% in Asia and 20% in the USA. These numbers reflect the increasing demand for efficient and high-quality kitchen solutions. According to Hauck-Aufhäuser analyst Simon Keller, Rational stands out for its industry-leading technology.

Conclusion: Anticipation for further developments In summary, Rational is on the right track. The company has proven its financial strength and aims to continue growing with innovative products. However, the most exciting developments are yet to come, especially with the launch of the new kitchen technology. Although Rational’s stock is ambitiously valued, the potential still appears high.
