Martullo-Blochers Ems-Chemie reached new highs in the first half of the year

Ems-Chemie significantly increased sales and profits in the first half of 2021. After the massive slump in the previous year, the specialty chemicals group has already set new records. As Ems announced on Friday, sales climbed from January to June by a whopping 37.9 percent to 1.17 billion Swiss francs. In the previous year, the effects of the coronavirus pandemic had left their mark on Ems and caused sales to shrink by around a quarter.

The recovered sales had an impact on the results. Expressed in figures, operating profit at EBIT level rose 41.6 percent year-on-year to CHF 321 million. And the corresponding margin went up 0.7 percentage points to 27.5 percent.
