Veritas' turnover and profit increase

Veritas' turnover and profit increase

Despite a large fire, Veritas still managed to achieve a 4.56 % turnover growth in its past fiscal year (2013-2014).

93 million euro turnover


The combined turnover for Veritas (the stores) and Veriac (the purchase and logistics branch) reached 93 million euro, a 4.56 % increase despite the crisis and a company fire. 


It is considerably lower than the average turnover growth from 2008 to 2013, when Veritas managed 14.1 %. Nevertheless, the company looks to the future and that future seems to be abroad.
