Satisfactory results in times of economic normalization

Thomas Schmuckli und Daniel Bossard

Dr. Thomas Schmuckli, Chair of the board of directors and Dr. Daniel Bossard, CEO

 

The strong, above-average market demand observed since the fourth quarter of 2020 normalized across all regions over the course of 2023. In addition, the recovery in global supply chains led our customers to reduce inventory, thus ending a phase of retaining safety stock in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The end of this economic boom, as well as price pressure, challenged us in times of rising labor costs.

Solid profitability in a challenging environment

Despite economic normalization over the course of the year and the negative impact of the strong Swiss franc, Bossard was able to report a satisfactory result and strengthen its market position in all three market regions.
