The Biesterfeld Group succeeded in growing its earnings during 2015. At €1.1 Bn, revenues remained solid at the previous year's level. Throughout the past year, corporate structures were targeted for development while business activities and the product portfolio underwent further expansion. Overall, operating profit rose to €40.1m. CEO of Biesterfeld AG, Thomas Arnold, commented: “2015 was a very successful year for us. Thanks to our long-standing and close cooperation with customers and suppliers, not to mention generally positive developments in the economic situation, we were able to raise the operating profit of the Biesterfeld Group to a record level.”

Alongside its extensive product range, the Group relies on strong collaboration with suppliers from among the world's market leaders. Its strategic focus centres on a service-orientated offering of plastics, chemical specialities and commodities. “We don't just offer our customers products, above all we offer solutions.

"Intensive and innovative consultations by our staff are essential in this respect. Our choice of strategic focus has been validated by both customers and the market.”
