With yet another successful financial year, the Hilti Group has confirmed its strategic growth course. Hilti performed very well and achieved sales growth of +5.7 percent in Swiss francs in what continued to be a challenging market environment. After adjusting for the sale of US-based solar affiliate Unirac, sales in Swiss francs grew by +7.1 percent over the previous year. Hilti benefited from the substantial investments in new products, services and software made over the past few years, as well as from a significant expansion of the direct sales force and managed to gain additional market share. With an increase of +10 percent, the operating result is again at a record level.
