• Revenue increase of around 16 percent
• Largest share of sales in German-speaking
• China still on track despite challenging
Hornberg, January 31, 2023, Following last year’s strong performance, current estimates suggest that
operating profit will once again be up year on year. Commenting on the provisional announcement of the
results, CEO Stephan Tahy said: “Once again we have come a little closer to our growth target of
€1 billion in sales by 2025, despite challenging conditions in some regions.
The current figures confirm that we are on the right track and give us confidence.” According to Tahy, who became CEO of Duravit AG over two years ago, a key factor for Duravit’s success is the company’s ability to
implement the measures of its strategic plan globally as a team and to gain market share as a result.
Sustainability as a driver of innovation
Duravit’s long-established “local-for-local” strategy continues to have a positive effect – a
strategy that makes sense especially in terms of sustainability. The focus on local production,
supply, and procurement will continue. Only by doing so can Duravit achieve its ambitious target of
becoming climate-neutral by 2045. Various options for green energy generation and use are being
intensively explored in this context.
New lines give impetus for growth
Alongside successful new product launches in 2021 such as the D-Neo complete bathroom series, growth
was driven by the strong performance of new blockbuster ranges such as Duravit No.1.
One of the highlights exhibited by Duravit at the Salone del Mobile in Milan was the new Zencha range from German star designer Sebastian Herkner. The sophisticated aesthetics, gentle forms, and
attractive touch of the pieces transforms the time we spend each day in the bathroom into a ritual of
relaxation and inner reflection. With the Tulum range from Philippe Starck as the
latest addition to the faucet segment, Duravit continues to reinforce its position as a complete
bathroom provider. Alongside the sound core ceramic business, growth in
2022 was generated in the SensoWash, bathtubs, and faucets segments.
Expansion of global project business
Expansion of the international project business is a central part of the global strategy. This key sector
has been reinforced and standardized accordingly. This enables Duravit to ensure that project
customers get the best-possible support – for any project, anywhere in the world.
Strong partners in all sectors
Duravit continues to place its trust in strong sales partners as part of this process. The three-stage
sales principle remains center stage for Duravit, hence the consistent implementation of a strategy
that differentiates sales channels via a diversified product portfolio in order to meet specific
Outlook for 2023
Duravit continues to face weakening economies in many regions of the world, rising energy prices,
high raw-material costs, and shortages of skilled labor. Given the company’s continued strong
willingness to make large investments and the high capability of the Duravit teams to implement the
company’s strategy globally, Tahy remains optimistic for 2023.
