Etex continues on growth path despite volatile environment Etex 2023 Half-Year Results
In the first half of 2023, Etex coped with an overall slowdown of the construction sector – both in new build and renovation – triggered by several elements leading to high volatility and uncertainty such as inflation that puts pressure on consumers’ buying power, higher interest rates and more restricted loan policies by banks. However, Etex managed to record improved sales compared to the first half of 2022 through swift adaptations to challenging market contexts and cost-to-price monitoring. While our volumes are slightly impacted, margins remain strong.
