Groz-Beckert in numbers
In fiscal year 2022, sales increased by 26 million euros (+ around 4%) to 743 million euros. Groz-Beckert felt the weak development in China in all six textile product areas. At the same time other markets outside China and different sectors of the textile industry developed positively. All Groz-Beckert product areas were able to benefit from this development and could increase their sales. In addition, positive currency effects contributed to the growth in sales.
