The Hilti Group grew sales by 4.3 percent in the 2019 business year to CHF 5.9 billion. In local currencies, growth was 6.3 percent against the previous year.
“2019 was another successful year for us with exclusively organic growth. The economic environment has become more volatile while global construction growth has noticeably slowed. Additionally, currencies largely displayed depreciation tendencies against the Swiss franc. Against this background we’re satisfied with our growth level and are pleased that we gained additional market share,” commented Hilti CEO Christoph Loos on the developments in the 2019 business year.
“Hilti North America is pleased to be an important contributor to the growth of the Hilti Group in 2019,” observed Martina McIsaac, Region Head and Chief Executive Officer of Hilti North America.” Turnover in North America increased 8.6% in Swiss Francs (7.3% in local currencies).
Martina continued, “Major factors in our growth are the focus on new products, services and software which bring added-value to the industry, and our 3,800 team members who are engaging daily with professional customers.”
