The HORNBACH Group companies focus on DIY, garden, and home improvement retail.
HORNBACH Baumarkt AG operates DIY megastores with garden centers and online stores in nine European countries. The do-it-yourself (DIY) retail segment accounts for around 95 percent of consolidated sales. Around half of these sales are generated in Germany. HORNBACH Baumarkt AG is also present in Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Austria, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. With net sales of around Euro 5.5 billion (2021/22), HORNBACH Baumarkt AG is the fifth-largest DIY retailer in Europe.
Thanks to its organically grown homogeneous store network – predominantly with sales areas of more than 10,000 square meters – HORNBACH benefits from economies of scale in the operation and conceptual development of its stores, as well as in its group logistics. Measured in terms of productivity, HORNBACH is by far the No. 1 DIY retailer in Germany in terms of sales per square meter of sales area.
HORNBACH combines its stationary retail business in all countries in its business region with online stores and a virtual advisory offering for DIY multi-channel retail (Interconnected Retail, or ICR for short). With an online share of around 15 percent of total sales (including Click & Collect), HORNBACH is the market leader in DIY interconnected retail.
The product range on offer at HORNBACH’s DIY stores and garden centers encompasses an average of around 50,000 articles stocked at its stationary stores and up to around 250,000 articles available online. Products are available in five divisions:
