Wilo Group Marks Third Year of Growth
The Wilo Group has reported exponentially increasing sales over the past three years. This year, the Germany-based manufacturer experienced worldwide sales growth of nearly 11 percent. Wilo Group has a number of subsidiaries, including Wilo USA, a pump and pumps solutions provider for water management, building services, and groundwater applications.
"The fact that the economic conditions are still very difficult makes these record figures even more impressive," says CEO Oliver Hermes. Despite the ongoing European national debt crisis, Wilo hired more than 7,000 new employees in 2012 – more than any other year in the company’s history.
Wilo continues to grow around the world, expanding its operations and staff. Last October, Wilo opened a new production site in Beijing and made additions to facilities in Germany and France, increasing production capacity. This Spring, Wilo USA opened a new 61,625-square-foot service and distribution center in Thomasville, Georgia. A new production site in Korea will finish construction this year as well.
The company has a strong commitment to innovation, growth, and service. Its progressive thinking and pioneering spirit is outlined in its motto: “Pioneering for You.”
