Karcher Facts and Figures of the 2012 Fiscal Year

When it comes to steam cleaners, there can be no doubt that Karcher is the example to follow. Thanks to a very successful 2012, the company has cemented itself as the global market leader in cleaning technology and continues to expand and evolve.

Karcher’s commitment to innovation without compromising any of their values or qualities is what makes them stand out from the rest of the competition.


Financially, 2012 was a record year for Karcher. With a turnover of over 1.9 billion Euros, profits for the company have soared, due in no small part to record sales of 10.8 million units. Having introduced over 100 new products in 2012, the versatility and vision of the company continues to expand into different areas of cleaning technology.


The steam-cleaner range from Karcher has continued to display excellent innovation; their high-efficiency steam cleaners manage to achieve fantastic results without sacrificing any of the environmentally-friendly qualities that make their products such a benchmark for domestic and commercial cleaning.


Karcher is the epitome of a successful family-run business. As a company, Karcher employs over 9,600 staff across 60 countries. These 60 countries contain 93 subsidiaries and 40,000 sales outlets and service centres. Despite being a German company, 85% of their turnover comes from outside their home country, and that figure shows no signs of decreasing any time soon as their rapid growth continues.

The company has taken out an enormous 1,300 patents since its inception in 1935, and as of 2012 they have 460 currently active.

Large Product Range

Karcher’s range of cleaning products consists of a huge catalogue including pressure washers, carpet cleaners (both industrial and domestic), steam cleaners and scrubber dryers, just to name a few. These products are all produced in conjunction with Karcher’s environmental policy, which is reducing power and water consumption throughout the company; from the administrative department to the production process.

Their commitment to reducing their carbon footprint means that if you choose a Karcher product, you are choosing a product that is efficient in both a cleaning sense and an environmental sense.
