Written by on May 8, 2024

GUELPH, Ont. — Linamar Corp. says earnings were up in its first quarter from last year as revenue rose on market share growth and acquisitions.

The auto parts manufacturer says it had net income of $178.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, up from $117 million in the same quarter last year.

Sales totalled $2.72 billion, up from $2.29 billion last year. 

Linamar says sales in its industrial segment were up 24.5 per cent thanks to both market share growth for combine equipment and its acquisition of Bourgault, a farm equipment manufacturer.

It says sales in its mobility quarter were up 16.7 per cent, boosted both by acquisitions in Linamar Structures and its launching of programs and increased volumes.

Linamar says normalized earnings were $159.6 million, up from $121.7 million last year.
