In 2015 OLYMP continued to maintain its position despite difficult market conditions

 

Introduction of the shirt innovation OLMYP No. 6 Six super slim from 2016

 

In the 2015 financial year OLYMP Bezner KG achieved an increase in turnover of 5.1 percent. This clothing company based in Bietigheim-Bissingen (in the district of Ludwigsburg / Baden-Württemberg / Germany) continues to grow and on 31st December 2015 recorded a result of 237.0 million euros, in comparison to 225.4 million euros in 2014. At the same time, the number of employees has increased by 72 to 759 people. The manufacturer of men’s shirts, polos, ties, T-shirts and knitwear will in the future focus even more closely on the export market and develop individual foreign markets in a targeted manner.

 

“Germany isn’t just our home market, but also our most important sales market. In addition, with our extensive product range we are already represented in more than 40 countries and with optimised sales structures we are aiming to make full use of the existing market potential in the best way possible,” comments Mark Bezner, owner and CEO of OLYMP Bezner KG. And he adds: “In view of the continued downward market trend in the textile sector, we are completely satisfied with the result achieved.”

 

Revenues have risen similarly at home and abroad. Increasing sales figures in Great Britain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, France, Austria, Switzerland and Hungary are in contrast to a continued decline in turnover in the previously strong CIS states. “Following a noticeable decline in sales in 2015,  it is to be further expected that the business partners in Russia and the Ukraine will be cautious in their purchasing behaviour due to the sanctions and the massive devaluation of their national currencies. Nevertheless, with the early orders for the 2016 autumn season, we are hoping to once again achieve a small increase in this significant export region for OLYMP products”, explains Mark Bezner.

 

OLYMP is starting 2016 with an exceptionally fashionable innovation. With the new OLYMP No. 6 Six super slim, the company is introducing a shirt for sporty and stylish men who have an athletic figure. The highly tapered business shirt features a younger, fashionably cool silhouette and is aimed specifically at the athletic target group. It is made from high quality comfort stretch fabric, offers great shape retention and is particularly easy to iron. A new look which is also for fashion-conscious men who are not only becoming leaner and fitter, but who also like to show off their athletic physique. “With the OLYMP No. 6 Six super slim we want to capture another target group and a new sales segment”, explains Mark Bezner with regard to this decision.

 

OLYMP Bezner KG is the market leader for men's shirts in Germany and is experiencing continued growth both at a national and international level. Following the successful final completion of the OLYMP Logistics Centre, which also saw the last three storage aisles being placed in operation in the middle of 2015,  the extension of the company’s headquarters by another 3,000 square metres of administrative space is also about to be completed. The company MAERZ Muenchen KG, which has been part of the OLYMP Bezner Group of companies since 2010 and has 112 employees in München-Perlach, Germany and around 400 production staff at its own knitwear factory in Hungary, achieved a turnover of 26.3 million euros in 2015. The OLYMP Bezner Group therefore recorded a cumulative total turnover of 263.3 million euros in 2015.
