Pleasing result in 2016 for Sedus Stoll Group with an increase in incoming orders (+4.3 %), sales (+5.3 %) and net income for the year (€ 9.5 million). And incoming orders continue to increase also in the first months of 2017. Innovative products, the attention to the changes in the workplace and the special focus on employee health are among the success factors.
With total sales at €188.5 million, the fiscal year of 2016 is one of the three best years in the company’s history. Incoming orders in the first four months of 2017 range already +4.2% above those of the previous year.
This pleasant operating result keeps the Sedus Stoll Group on a growth track and has enabled the company to expand its market share in terms of total market order growth.
Neither the announced Brexit nor political uncertainties in Europe and the USA have had a noticeably negative effect so far.
New products presented at Orgatec and Salone del Mobile Workplace 3.0 also contribute to the successful development.
Four of the Sedus innovations (the se:do swivel chair, the se:line conference chair, the se:works lounge furniture system, the se:wall partition and acoustics system) have already received a total of eight authoritative design awards.
