In fiscal year 2012-2013 the HELLA group successfully continued its globalization in spite of increasingly demanding general conditions. With a growth of 4 percent, the company achieved sales of €5.0 billon for the first time and, in doing so, obtained earnings (EBIT) of €299 million. This rise in sales is to be attributed principally to an attractive and innovative product portfolio as well as the outstanding position of the company in international growth markets. The strong presence of HELLA in Asia and North America made it possible to offset the decline in demand in the European vehicle markets. The ability to innovate and technological leadership in global competition form the support pillars of the company’s success. Therfore, HELLA invested €468 million, or 9 percent of sales, into new products, technologies and the expansion of the international development network.
