Würth manages turnover rise

The Würth Group was able to raise its turnover in the first half-year 2015 by 8.7% compared to last year to EUR 5,459 m.

Earnings after 6 months stand at the same level as last year. Apart from exchange rate losses in connection with the revaluation of the Swiss franc the reason for this stagnating result is the investments in the field service. In comparison with last year the Würth Group’s payroll of 30,686 represents about 1,000 salespersons more.

In the second half of the year 2015 the Würth Group anticipates turnover growth in middle single figures and a reasonable development in the operating result.
