Sales and EBITDA increased by 23% over the period from 2004 to 2014, and the growth trend continues to be prospective. The number of employees rose from 35 employees in 2003 to 340 in 2019. Today ORWO is the umbrella for three self-sustainable brands: PixelNet, Foto Quelle, Photo Dose and myfoto. The product range of ORWO Net GmbH includes prints, photo books and calendars as well as personalized photo and print products. 88 percent of sales are generated by digital imagery. Reference customers are nationwide and internationally operating drugstore and discount chains, mail-order houses and international Internet platforms.
