ROBERT REFLECTS

Once again, a year ends and another begins, and it’s time to look both forwards and backwards.
2015 turned out to be a very good year, as we achieved almost all the ambitious targets we had set for ourselves. We have strengthened our position both in Sweden and in the rest of the Nordic region. The export percentage is increasing steadily, profitability is satis- factory and the equity ratio is very good.

Sales of moulded products are continuing to grow, and Business Area Filtration has maintained its position. We are strong in filter media for thermal power plants, and our customer satisfaction is demonstrated by the fact they are continuing to purchase from Nordifa.

We invest with purpose – both in knowledge and in equipment. In 2015, we spent several million Swedish Kronor on modernising our machinery, with the obvious intention of ensuring that we will be better equipped to face the challenges of the future and our customers’ increasingly stringent requirements. To enable us to remain at the cutting edge, we visited a selection of specialist trade fairs, including Filtech in Cologne, Techtextil in Frankfurt and ITMA in Milan.

2016 will be an exceptionally busy year. We will continue to beat the drum for moulding technology, explaining its benefits and capabilities. We are also see- ing increasing interest from arenas all over Europe for our Rinktex ice cover. They all want to see their rinks used more intensively, and Rinktex is the key.

We also expect filtration to make substantial pro- gress during the year. We are experts at improving the performance of filter media and in how to achieve the best and cheapest maintenance regimes for filtration equipment. We really, really want to share our knowl- edge! We also have some new products in the pipeline, and we know the market is just waiting on them.

But most of all, we are looking forward to spring ..
