Sonepar 2021 Key Figures


2021 was a historic year for Sonepar. The Group broke a new record after 2019 and recorded sales of 26.4 billion euros, with 18% autonomous growth.

Sonepar is currently undergoing an ambitious and challenging transformation, serving customers with an omnichannel digital experience, promoting best-in-class sustainability, and ensuring our associates a diverse and inclusive working environment.  

​​​​2021 was the year of laying the foundations for our digital transformation. Sonepar launched Spark omnichannel platform in four countries and is continuing its global deployment in 2022. With Spark, Sonepar strives to become the first electrical equipment distributor in the world to offer all customers a fully digital and synchronized experience.

In 2021 we also renewed Sonepar’s brand identity and unveiled a new logo. The ellipses – the two, interlocking orbits that represent Sonepar’s unique balance of global scale and local empowerment– have been simplified in order to work powerfully wherever they appear. Sonepar’s new identity is modern, bold, and designed for an omnichannel experience.

Let’s have a look at the official Group Key Figures in 2021:
