The OECHSLER Group, a leading plastics technology group with a global presence and headquarters in Ansbach/Middle Franconia, grew again in 2018 and achieved consolidated sales of 430 million euros in the past financial year (previous year: 369 million euros). The group is active at three German and six other locations worldwide in the Automotive, Medical and Innovative Solutions divisions. The Innovative Solutions business division developed particularly positively in the reporting year, with its share of group turnover increasing from 14 to 22 percent. With three production sites worldwide in Ansbach Brodswinden, Acworth (USA) and Long An (Vietnam), this area also includes the fast-growing SPEEDFACTORY production of sports shoes as well as the manufacture of sports shoe soles using the 3D printing process for adidas by OECHSLER Motion. Despite an increase in sales with innovative products such as the electronic parking brake or sensor components for assisted and autonomous driving, the Automotive segment's share of Group sales fell to 74 percent (after 81 percent in 2017). With a revenue share of four per cent (after 5 per cent in 2017), the third business segment, Medical, declined slightly compared to the previous year, as expected.
Analogous to the positive business development, the number of employees also increased throughout the group: On an annual average, the OECHSLER Group employed 3,075 people, 538 more than in the previous year. Of these, 1,536 (previous year: 1,454) were employed at the OECHSLER sites in Ansbach, Weißenburg (OECHSLER AG) and Ansbach-Brodswinden (OECHSLER Motion GmbH), including 84 trainees (previous year: 83). The sales revenues of the two German locations of OECHSLER AG as well as the German location of OECHSLER Motion GmbH increased to 323 million euros in 2018 (previous year: 307 million euros).Dr Claudius M. Kozlik, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of OECHSLER AG, emphasised during the presentation of the annual results: "OECHSLER has grown strongly worldwide in recent years and invested in the development of attractive future fields at an early stage: for example, in the automotive field we have developed products that are predominantly independent of a drive technology. In addition, the dynamically growing SPEEDFACTORY production for our customer adidas confirms that we are consistently seizing opportunities to apply our unique production know-how in high-growth new projects and regions."
