FRITZ HANSEN RELEASES STRONG FINANCIAL STATEMENT
Republic of Fritz Hansen™ releases positive financial statements for 2016 with a turnover of DKK 602m and an 8% growth rate. Profit before tax amounted to DKK 125m, which is an 16% increase compared to 2015, and the best result in the company’s 145-year history. The result should be seen as part of the growth plan aimed at ensuring a turnover of DKK 750m for the company in 2018.
Market development in 2016
The greater part of the realised growth derives from the Danish domestic market, which has experienced an increase of 7%, and from the US and Asia with an increase of 20 and 31%, respectively. In the US, there is an increasing interest in Danish design, particularly in the contract market where the growth derives from a number of large project orders for both new Fritz Hansen designs and classics. One example of this is the cooperation between Bjarke Ingels’ design division, KiBiSi and Fritz Hansen which in May 2016 resulted in the presentation of the VIA57™ chair, designed for the prestigious VIA57 WEST skyscraper in New York, which is BIG architects’ first project in Manhattan.
