Four platforms with market-leading positions and high growth potential
The Industry business area consists of four businesses with leading market positions in their own niches. They represent strong platforms with good foundations for continued growth through organic development and value-creating add-on acquisitions. The businesses are manufacturing suppliers of solutions in various sectors – grain handling, moisture and water damage restoration, infrastructure for telecom and lighting, and stone and cement products for infrastructure, paving and roofing. Demand for the business area’s products is mainly driven by factors other than the general economy, which means the business area is not particularly cyclically sensitive. What the businesses have in common is the potential for rapid growth with a clear focus on long-term value creation.
