KIRCHLENGERN, Germany - German furniture fitting giant Hettich reported  € 1.1 billion ($1.2 billion) in sales for 2019 - a 3.2 percent increase over 2018.
 
72 percent of business was done outside Germany. The company employed an annual average of 6,700 members of staff, with over 3,600 in Germany.
 
"Our dedicated team, working hand in hand with our customers and suppliers, has once again broken the one billion euro sales mark. We managed to achieve the further increase in 2019 because we strictly serve the needs of different markets and because the entire Hettich team pulls together worldwide", says Sascha Gross, managing director.
 
Hettich credits its success to its innovative products and future investments. Products highlighted by the company include the TopLine XL sliding door system and its AvanTech YOU, which permits the use of one drawer on two different runners with the same cabinet body drilling pattern.
 
The effects of the coronavirus pandemic will have a significant impact on business performance in 2020.
