HELLA in Figures

HELLA has achieved sales of € 4.4 billion in short fiscal year 2022. A central part of our strategy is the global presence in significant growth markets. In the past fiscal year, we generated one third of our consolidated sales in the markets outside Europe. Around the globe, HELLA has some 36,000 employees, more than 8,000 of whom work in R&D. Not standing still in development, working out ideas and taking them into serial production is what drives us, every day.

HELLA changed its fiscal year to the calendar year with effect from 1 January 2023, and therefore inserted a short fiscal year from 1 June to 31 December 2022. Comparability with the fiscal year 2021/2022 (1 June 2021 to 31 May 2022) is therefore limited.
