The Datwyler Group maintained its profitable growth path during the first half of 2018 in what was a moderate market in parts. Unaudited net revenue was up 7.7% on the same period last year at CHF 694.1 million (previ-ous year: CHF 644.5 million). Thanks to its leading market positions and operational strength, the Sealing Solu-tions division made a significant contribution to this growth. Demand for high-quality seal components for the health care industry outstripped market growth. However, the Technical Components division also succeeded in increasing revenue on the back of its core business-to-business (B2B) online distribution activities. Adjusted for positive currency effects, this resulted in 2.5% organic growth for the Datwyler Group as a whole.
