The electronics company exceeds the Billion Euro mark in the current fiscal year
Detmold, 08.11.2022. At the beginning of November 2022, the Weidmüller Group exceeded the sales mark of € 1 Billion for the first time in the current fiscal year. The company is optimistic about the further course of the current year and forecasts a positive growth of overall more than 20 percent for the fiscal year 2022 compared to the previous year.
The company was able to successfully meet the continuously increasing order backlogs despite a challenging sourcing situation, which resulted in the record turnover in the fourth quarter. "Our sales expectations were not only met, but even exceeded," says a pleased Volker Bibelhausen, spokesperson for the Executive Board and Chief Technology Officer, and looks optimistically into the future: "We are confident that the excellent order books will continue to give us a tailwind despite the tense situation on the energy markets." Overall, the growth of the internationally leading electrical engineering supplier thus reflects the continuing positive trend in the electrical engineering and automation industry.
Weidmüller continues to grow
Weidmüller currently has close to 6,000 employees at more than 30 locations and 60 offices and is consistently pursuing its growth course worldwide. "We are planning an ongoing systematic increase in personnel in all areas as well as further strategic investments in new technologies and markets," explains Weidmüller Chief Financial Officer André Sombecki.
