BBS Increases Sales by 37 Percent in 2014

  • Corporate sales of 70 million Euro in 2014 financial year
  • Profits rose to over 10%
  • Growth projected to continue in 2105

Wheel manufacturer BBS looks back on a very successful 2014 financial year. “Compared to last year, we increased sales in the aftermarket sector by a whopping 37 percent,” Vice President of Aftermarket at BBS Erwin Eigel said. Overall, the company increased its annual sales of just over 50 million euros in 2013 to 70 million euros in the last financial year, and the firm’s earnings before interest and taxes (EBITDA) rose from 6% in 2013 to over 10%. It achieved these figures through extensive investments in plant and process optimization of the BBS facilities in Schiltach and Herbolzheim. The number of employees grew during this time of just under 400 on currently more than 500 employees.

Traditionally, the business success of BBS based on both the aftermarket and the OEM sector. Many new projects with quality manufacturers have been successfully launched.
“In the past two years we have also developed new wheels and achieved a growth rate of over 50 percent in the aftermarket space,” said Erwin Eigel. On this BBS was able to expand its leading position as the largest aftermarket supplier of weight-optimized flow forming wheels.

Even in 2015 will Schiltach continue on the course: “For the new year we are planning further growth and investment of over eight million euros,” said Eigel, adding: “We are very proud on our successes in recent years, above all, we are pleased that our efforts are valued by our commercial customers and consumers so positively. We continue to strive to meet the demands of the market- because the BBS brand requires it!”
