Our consolidated companies in China had 2,571 employees at the end of the third quarter (end of 2013: 1,966). Due to reorganization in the context of the Customer Dedication initiative, the numbers of employees previously reported under “Sales Organization” are included in the respective divisions as of 2014. This does not apply, however, to the Group’s own sales and service centers in Germany and the logistics center in Germersheim, whose employees are included under “Group Functions & Services” as of 2014.
