Corona pandemic leads to decline in sales in H1/2020
The temporary plant closures at almost all customers in every region, especially in the 2nd quarter (Q2) 2020, not only led to an unprecedented market collapse, but also to a production stop at all 55 Autoneum sites. Starting in February 2020 in China and one month later in all other regions, automotive manufacturers temporarily shut down production completely.
Sales development in all Business Groups outperformed the respective markets, particularly in Asia and the SAMEA (South America, Middle East and Africa) region.
Autoneum has now launched "Autoneum Pure.", a comprehensive sustainability label for its products. The label recognizes new noise and heat protection technologies that demonstrate very good environmental performance throughout the entire product life cycle. It allows vehicle manufacturers to identify at a glance which products are most suitable for use in future, environmentally friendly models. Various multifunctional Autoneum technologies already meet the high standards for Autoneum Pure products, including the latest innovation Mono-Liner.
