Bizerba has exceeded the sales mark of 500 million euros for the first time in its history. In 2014, the globally active company based in Balingen, Germany, generated sales of 503.8 million euros - an increase of 8.1 percent compared to the previous year.

The growth is attributable to a positive development in all key sales regions as well as the consolidation of a company acquired in Switzerland.

The group, which was founded in 1866 and has been family-owned for five generations, employs some 3,300 employees worldwide. “Exceeding the 500 million sales mark is a milestone for us and confirms the outstanding work that we have done over the past year,” says Andreas Wilhelm Kraut, managing partner and CEO of Bizerba. “Our strategy of sustained growth is paying off in Germany and particularly in our overseas sales regions.

Almost all regions were able to contribute to the record sales: As in recent years, the regions North America and Europe excluding Germany posted disproportionately strong results with an increase of 8.6 percent and 11.7 percent, respectively. Germany also posted a significant increase in sales by 4.4 percent and continues to be the largest single market, followed by the US. Overall, the share of international sales increased to 67.3 percent. All product segments, including retail scales, slicers and industry solutions as well as labels and other services, recorded encouragingly strong sales growth.

Stefan Junker, Commercial Director and CFO, considers the company well prepared for the future: “As part of a strategic future initiative, we are focusing intensively on tapping new markets and defining new business models. In future, our customers will be able to benefit even more from the integration of our hardware and software solutions with services and labels offerings”.

In 2014, Bizerba established new subsidiaries in South Africa and Ukraine and was able to secure a leading market position in Switzerland through the acquisition of Busch Werke AG. In March 2015, Bizerba took over the French company Luceo, a technology leader in the field of optical inspection solutions.
