Heroldsberg, 5th of June 2019. The internationally active Schwan-STABILO Group, which recently generated EUR 685.4m in sales and which employs 4,900 staff members worldwide across three business areas (Cosmetics, Writing Instruments and Outdoor), is setting an organisational course for safeguarding the Group’s future in the long term.
At the start of the new fiscal year (01/07/2019), overarching responsibility for the entire business will be transferred to two Group Managing Directors. The subgroups will continue to operate independently under their own management.
Heroldsberg, 20 November 2018. The Schwan STABILO Group has achieved a solid overall result in the 2017/18 fiscal year (ending 30 June, 2018), under at times difficult framework conditions on the international markets. After many years of growth, the turnover of the family-owned company, which is now in the fifth generation, is 685.4 million euros – slightly lower than the previous year’s excellent result of 713.5 million euros.TO THE REPORT
Heroldsberg, June 2018. In June 2018, Schwan-STABILO received the renowned international “Prix Leonardo da Vinci”. Schwan-STABILO was commended as a “particularly innovative, value-oriented and sustainably managed family company” at a ceremony in the Deutsches Museum in Munich. Founded in 1865, the company is fully owned by the Schwanhäußer family and presently managed by its 5th generation. The prize was awarded by “Les Hénokiens”, an international association of bicentenary family companies from all over the world. Sebastian Schwanhäußer accepted the prize during a top-class ceremony held at the Deutsches Museum in Munich.TO THE REPORT
Heroldsberg, May 2018. On 8 and 9 May, the Schwan-STABILO group will be at akademika, Southern Germany’s most important job fair, looking for talented applicants for two of their three business areas. Teams from Schwan Cosmetics and STABILO International, the market leaders for cosmetic pencils and writing instruments, will be at their booths waiting to talk to students, graduates and young professionals about career opportunities. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about entry schemes, new careers and offers promoting the compatibility of family and work at the family firm. Although the two company areas each have a different focus, successful work in times of digitalisation and the world of work 4.0 is only possible for those ready to think outside of the box – which is the reason for the unanimous message from recruiters and specialists.TO THE REPORT
