Würth Group continues to grow


In the first six months of 2019, the global market leader
in the trade with fastening and assembly materials
increased sales by 5.2 percent to EUR 7.2 billion.
Operating result declining.


Künzelsau. In the first six months of 2019, the Würth Group reported
sales of EUR 7.2 billion. This corresponds to an increase of 5.2
percent. The sales volume of the companies outside Germany rose by
6.3 percent. Reporting growth of 11.8 percent, the Southern European
companies boast the highest growth rates among the companies and
continue to develop positively.
In Germany, the Würth Group generated sales of EUR 3.0 billion,
which corresponds to growth of 3.6 percent. Robert Friedmann,
Chairman of the Central Managing Board, is optimistic about the
second half of the year saying, “the construction sector is still going
strong”.


Electrical wholesaling surpassing Group growth
At 13.8 percent, the Electrical Wholesale Unit reported the strongest
growth among all units of the Group, which is partly attributable to
acquisitions made. In June 2019, Würth’s Electrical Wholesale Unit
signed a contract to acquire Grupo Electro Stocks S.L.U. (GES), one of
the leading electrical wholesalers in Spain reporting a sales volume of
EUR 261.5 million in 2018. The transaction is subject to the approval
of the anti-trust authorities. Organic growth of the business unit came
to 6.5 percent.
Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG, the parent company and at the same
time the largest company of the Würth Group, generated sales of EUR
1,035 million in the first half of 2019 (+ 6.6 percent). The company is
firmly convinced to surpass the EUR 2 billion mark in 2019.

Operating result
At EUR 340 million at the end of the first half of 2019, the operating
result of the Würth Group is down on the previous year (2018: EUR
400 million). “Our gross profit margin has come under pressure: We
cannot fully pass rising purchasing prices on to our customers in the
market,” Robert Friedmann explained the declining result. “In addition,
our continued high investments in the expansion of our business units
have an impact on the result, yet they are a means to prepare the
ground for future growth. Nonetheless, we expect to close the
financial year 2019 reporting an operating result comparable to last
year’s.” In 2018, the Würth Group’s operating result amounted to
EUR 870 million.


Employees
The number of employees increased by 747, from 77,080 at the end
of 2018 to 77,827 in the first half of 2019. In Germany, the number
of employees amounts to 24,044, increasing by 3.2 percent on the
previous year. The Group currently has 33,585 sales force employees
on the payroll.
