Sonepar in 2020
Sonepar, undoubtedly the No.1 in the global electrical wholesaling business, announced the sales figures for the past year. A total of EUR 23 bn was turned over with 45,000 people (48,000 in 2019) in 2,800 branches (3,000 branches in 2019) in 40 countries. Sonepar has an outstanding position in almost every country in which it operates. But Corona also caused a slight drop in sales; in the previous year it was EUR 24 bn, a slight loss of 4.2%.
