Deceuninck Group reports ‘good start’ to 2018

Deceuninck has reported a strong start to 2018, with results for H1 2018 showing that group sales grew 0.8% to €341.5 million, with adjusted EBITDA growth up 10.4%. According to Deceuninck, growth is driven by recent investments and strong business development in the United States and emerging markets.

Deceuninck CEO, Francis Van Eeckhout, commented: “We are in general pleased with the progress we made in the first half of 2018. Recent investments are paying off and our innovations are well received by the market. We continue to work on further reducing the ecological footprint of our products.”

Rob McGlennon, Deceuninck UK MD, added: “These are very promising results which show a good start to 2018. We’re very pleased with the UK’s strong performance. In July 2018 Deceuninck UK recorded sales 27% up on July 2017, with year to date sales up 13% on the same period last year.

“Our success comes from giving customers the tools to grow with the right products, service and support. In a market that’s 5-10% down, Deceuninck customers are flying high with our unbeatable 26 colourways from stock and innovative products like the award-winning Heritage Flush Sash and Slider24+ patio door. Commercial is also growing exceptionally strongly.”
