In 2014, Endress+Hauser increased net sales by approximately 11 percent, exceeding the 2 billion euro mark. The Swiss measurement and automation engineering specialist also improved operating profit as well as profit before taxes and net income.
“In view of the worldwide political and economic challenges, we can be very satisfied with these results, even if we haven’t met all of our targets,” said Chief Financial Officer Dr Luc Schultheiss. Overall developments in the foreign exchange rates created a slight tailwind last year.
According to Luc Schultheiss, the Group’s organic growth in net sales reached just under 6 percent.
Employment levels developed very positively. At the end of 2014, Endress+Hauser employed 12,435 people worldwide, 516 more than in the previous year.
