Germany, the USA, Italy, China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Brazil, Japan and Iraq played a major role in the overall growth in 2018. As in previous years, not only classic growth markets but also stagnating markets and countries with economic and political challenges are represented among the growth drivers. In 2018, the KLS Martin Group recorded worldwide sales growth in the upper single-digit range, with a very good growth rate compared to other international companies.
However, the Swabian family business does not rest on its laurels of the past, but is already full of beans in the middle of the new business year. "As with all companies in the industry, the upcoming MDR is a problem for us and ties up many resources. It is therefore all the more important to prioritise and target all activities. For us, the year 2019 is all about focusing so that we can continue to adhere to our long-term growth strategy," explains Christian Leibinger, President of the KLS Martin Group.
