Annual Report 2021 Figures, analyses, stories

Editorial Business year 2021

We look back on an extremely successful, but from an operational point of view very challenging financial year. The situation in the construction industry was positive in most regions. COVID‑19-related catch-up effects largely led to pleasing growth figures. In the last six quarters, net sales for the Geberit Group grew around three times faster than the long-term average. At the same time, this sudden strong growth represented an extremely challenging situation for our entire organisation, particularly in Purchasing, Production, Logistics and Sales. The further increase in results compared to the previous year was based on our structural and financial strength as well as our prudent crisis management right from the start of the COVID‑19 pandemic. This enabled us to further consolidate our position as leading supplier of sanitary products and gain market shares.
