Foreign countries ensure top results for Hornbach

The German DIY store operator Hornbach increased its sales at home and abroad last year by a total of EUR 230 mio, which is a rise of 5.3 per cent compared to 2016. This means that the number three in Germany has gained the highest absolute growth rate of all German DIY store operators.

However, this success stems mostly from a strong development abroad. This is where EUR 200 mio (plus 10.5 per cent) of the total sales growth has come from. Hornbach also achieved a peak rate in sales area productivity: here, the DIY store operator generated EUR 2 486 per square metre of retail space in 2017, EUR 85 more than in 2016 still.

The editorial team of Dähne Verlag's diy trade magazine will reveal the latest figures relating to the development of German home improvement retailers today, Monday 5 March 2018 at the International Hardware Fair in Cologne. The first, as yet provisional results of the renowned publication "Statistik Baumarkt + Garten D-A-CH 2018", which presents figures and analyses for the home improvement and garden sector in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, will be presented then.

The new publication can now be ordered from the Dähne shop via the link www.daehne.de/statistik-baumarkt-garten-2018
