Press briefing on annual results: The most successful year in company history
24.10.2016
• Year-on-year sales increase of 100 million euros
• Strong growth for all three subgroups for first time
• Number of employees rises by almost 10 per cent

Heroldsberg, Germany, October 2016. In the 2015/16 fiscal year (ended 30 June), the Schwan-STABILO Group, which has now been in the family for five generations, generated the highest turnover in over 160 years of the company’s history. Turnover rose by more than 100 million to 706.7 million euros, a year-on-year increase of 18 per cent. For the first time, all three subgroups contributed to the overall result with strong growth. The company has consistently diversified in its areas of business and is represented worldwide by sites in 22 countries. That is how it has thus far been possible to grow continuously, year for year, relatively independently of political and economical conditions.

Schwan-STABILO celebrated the opening of the first company crèche
03.05.2016
Heroldsberg, 15 April 2016 – On Friday, the Schwan-STABILO Group celebrated the grand opening of the new premises at their headquarters in the Franconian town of Heroldsberg. But there was no office or factory atmosphere apparent. Instead, there were heaps of coloring instruments and toys, cuddly blankets, low seating and even a metre-high swan, as well as a slide and nest swing outside. An unusual event for the international company? Definitely. Because Schwan-STABILO has opened its first company crèche, ColorLand, in cooperation with external operator “Kinderhaus Nürnberg gGmbH” and is only the second company in the region to do so.
