Our 2019 results are out! This is the best year ever for Sonepar in our 50-year history.
Sonepar Group is engaged in an ambitious transformation agenda to become the world’s undisputed leading B2B electrical distributor serving customers with the most advanced automated and digitalized omnichannel processes.
Today, we have the pleasure to share with you the updated key figures of Sonepar:
- €24 billion Group sales in 2019
- 48 countries
- 145 operating companies
- 3,000 branches
- 115 distribution centers, more than 1 million order lines per day
- 48,000 associates assisting more than 1 million customers
In 2019 Sonepar recorded sales of 24 billion €, up 7.1% versus last year. The 2019 financial performance was a historic best for Sonepar Group, both in terms of profitability and free cash flow. This achievement was again based on our long-standing strengths and our associates’ commitment to continuous improvement.
"Our 48,000 associates are our core strength and we are successfully tackling the digital transition head on thanks to them. All our associates have an incredible appetite for success, conquest and generating profit. They are our driving force." said Marie-Christine Coisne-Roquette, Chairman of Sonepar.
At Sonepar, in 48 countries, we strive daily to invent tomorrow’s solutions. Our associates’ innovative initiatives drive the Group forward and open up new horizons for our customers and for the planet. Sonepar wants to unify all stakeholders around a great vision of Social Responsibility including ambitious sustainability objectives.
Philippe Delpech, Sonepar CEO, said "Since its creation, Sonepar has demonstrated its unique ability to continuously anticipate trends and turn them into business opportunities. Given that the digital transformation is probably the single greatest challenge the business world has ever faced since industrialization, the entire company created “impact”, our very first compliance-based strategic plan with four pillars: People, Performance, Customer and Planet. With impact, Sonepar will successfully navigate its digital transformation and consolidate its position as world leader.”
A new look Panorama 2020
Along with the transformation, and to better present the global overview of our activities and convey our messages, Sonepar has launched a new version of Panorama. After gathering internal and external feedback, Sonepar’s Group Communications Department has decided to implement a new multi-channel approach to Panorama.
In an easy to read brochure, the new Panorama highlights Sonepar’s activities, key figures, business models, Chairman and CEO’s messages, as well as the pillars of our strategic plan “impact” – People, Planet, Performance and Customer.
Another new feature will be that Panorama will be constantly updated via the group website with regular updates of our initiatives and projects of Sonepar companies around the world in real time, all articulated around our strategic pillars – #People, #Planet, #Performance and #Customer. This content will of course also be published on our social media channels throughout the Group.
