Miele increases turnover by 3.2%

During the latter half of 2019, the Miele Group realized a turnover of € 2.24 bn. It is an increase of more than 3.2% compared to the previous year.

Especially washing machines, tumble dryers and vacuum cleaners contributed to the sales growth. In laundry care, numerous detail improvements – such as shorter programme cycles, the ability to add forgotten items of laundry throughout the cycle and the energy-efficient washing of individual garments – lead to more user convenience.

Especially Miele Professional experienced exceptional growth. Mainly as a result of its machines and services for commercial operations, medical facilities and laboratories, as well as thanks to  its Italian medical technology subsidiary Steelco. This company is supervising the promising hospital project business within the Group. Apart from that, compact commercial washing machines and dryers for small businesses (Little Giants) – on the market since last year with a completely new model series – are an essential growth driver. In total, professional turnover grew by more than 4%.
