The improvement point for Plug Power

Plug Power has grown by 160% in the last two years alone – and given a large number of forklift fuel cell orders – it should keep growing for now. The company’s problem is always turning that growth into a profit. In the past half a decade, revenues have increased, but the Plug Power is losing even more money than it did five years ago. And the gross margin is not improving either. Apart from that many investors still believe in the positive developments and market position of Plug Power.
