Zurich, Frankfurt - 26 March 2015

In 2014 the Zühlke Group achieved a double-digit increase in sales as well as in the number of employees. The group grew revenue to CHF 119 million and by the end of the year employed approximately 700 staff.

Digital transformation characterized 2014
Project orders were largely focused on the Internet of Things. Another significant area involved projects relating to the digital transformation. Zühlke supported companies with their shift to a data-driven future. Zühlke Ventures maintained its successful strategy of actively developing existing start-ups, thus helping them to deepen important long-term partnerships both on an operational level and with investors.
The realignment of the organization with the goal of positioning the company as a cross-technology solution provider with a high level of industry expertise was successfully completed. All companies in the group achieved revenue growth in the 2014 financial year and made a positive contribution to earnings. "We are highly satisfied with this result and reached two ambitious goals in 2014: we succeeded in securing and successfully implementing larger projects and, through the reorganization, in aligning our company even more closely to the solutions business. The credit for this goes to all our employees and customers, who have great faith in our company”, said Philipp Sutter, CEO Zühlke Engineering in Switzerland.

2015 - the year of strategic innovation projects
In the current financial year, the group plans to systematically expand its portfolio of services. Innovation projects for key industries are at the center of this growth strategy. The digital transformation is advancing in leaps and bounds in these industries and Zühlke wants to help actively shape this market The focus will be on data analytics, i.e. collecting, processing and utilizing digital information, and the Internet of Things (IoT). In Zühlke's view, these topics provide excellent potential for future growth.
