Wood packaging sector raises turnover to new record level

14.05.2014 − 

The 158 businesses organised in the German Federal Association for Wooden Packaging Materials, Pallets and Export Packaging (HPE) increased turnover in 2013 by 1.8% to a total of €1.338bn. In comparison to turnover in 2003 of roughly €736m, the 2013 result represents growth in turnover in the last ten years of roughly 82%. In this vein, business activity in the wooden-packaging sector has been at a very high level for the fourth year in succession. The largely positive business development being shown in the current year so far appears to continue the upward trend. For 2014, today’s perspective permits the sector to assume stable to slightly higher turnover compared with 2013.
