2015 was yet again a very satisfying year for EUROIMMUN, as announced at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders on 8 July 2016. This year, around 750 shareholders assisted the meeting, which is a new record. With an increase of 17.5%, the Group turnover exceeded the threshold of 200 million euros for the first time (amounting to 205.8 million euros). EUROIMMUN’s net sales increased by 10.4%, compared to the previous year, to 148.1 million euros.
Likewise, the number of employees in Germany and international subsidiaries increased in 2015, with 173 new employees, to a total of 2,069. Around 1,400 people thereof were employed in Germany and in the meantime, 80 further employees have been hired already.
Head of the financial management board, Axel Blankenburg is very positive about last year’s development and the near future of the company: “We have almost achieved the predicted sales target for 2015. As in previous years, all product groups have contributed to the growth. In future, we aim to further expand our business at international level. For instance, we have just acquired a new subsidiary in Spain and are now also represented on the Iberian Peninsula.
The enterprise has also grown in the literal sense, expanding its premises. For example, the laying of a cornerstone for the “House of Engineers” in Dassow and the new production site in China, as well as the acquisition of a further building in Selmsdorf took place in the past year. The US subsidiary moved into a new building which offers space for laboratories, offices, warehouses and customer trainings.
