HARTMANN’s sales and earnings decline compared with previous quarters, as expected
The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the HARTMANN GROUP's business development did not significantly diminish in the first six months of financial year 2021. The positive effects resulting from the pandemic, which were clearly visible in 2020, declined considerably, in particular, the demand for disinfection products and personal protective equipment. At the same time, the pandemic’s negative effects have largely persisted. Also, rising raw material, freight and logistics costs had a negative impact on the development of the business segments.
