In euros, however, consolidated net sales declined marginally by 0.2 percent to slightly more than 2.1 billion euros, mainly due to the impacts of exchange rates. With a global workforce of 13,003 at the end of 2016, an increase of 51 on the previous year, employment remained constant within the Group. www.endress.com 3 Faulhaber strengthens its presence in Malaysia Products and services of Faulhaber drive systems have been distributed in Malaysia by Faulhaber Malaysia Sdn Bhd. since January 2017.
