Share of e-business confirms success of multichannel sales model
Künzelsau. According to the preliminary annual financial statement,
the Würth Group reports a sales volume of EUR 13.6 billion in 2018
(previous year: EUR 12.7 billion). This corresponds to a growth of 7.1
percent. Adjusted for foreign currency effects, growth comes to 8.6
percent. All of the individual regions reported successful development
again in the past year. With respect to the business units, Electronics
and Electrical Wholesale showed above-average growth rates.

Operating result

According to preliminary calculations, the operating result of the
Würth Group is between EUR 860 and 880 million, which is a new
record and a clear increase over the previous year (2017: EUR 780
million). “We are highly pleased about this positive result. It provides
proof of the fact that thanks to our strategies and services we are still
an important partner for our customers in trade and industry,” explains
Robert Friedmann, Chairman of the Central Managing Board of the
Würth Group. E-business sales in 2018 amounted to EUR 2.4 billion
and grew at above-average proportions compared to Group sales.

Employees

The number of employees increased by 2,921 from 74,159 to
77,080 in 2018. In Germany, the number of employees amounts to
23,772 corresponding to an increase by 5.1 percent. The Group
currently has 33,218 sales force employees on the payroll.

Outlook

The Würth Group expects sales growth in the moderate single-digit
range as well as a proportionately rising operating result in 2019.
“Due to an economic slowdown, the year 2019 will certainly become
a bigger challenge than 2018. Nevertheless, there is still no cause for
concern, as the company is based on stable ground,” says Friedmann
about the expectations for the new business year.
