“We can summarise 2019 by saying that in a market characterised by caution and with large variations between different markets and market segments, we have put yet another robust full year behind us with both continued sales and profit growth,” says Gerteric Lindquist, Managing Director and Group CEO of NIBE.

 

“With our company philosophy and our strong product range, we are well positioned in a market that is increasingly feeling the influences of the transition to a more sustainable and digitalised society. This year’s acquisitions as well as our focus on product development should further strengthen our position. Our internal work on efficiency and rigorous cost control also continues with unchanged intensity.”

 

“Even though it’s difficult to make predictions in our current business climate, we are cautiously optimistic about 2020 thanks to our geographic spread, stable profitability and good financial preparedness for further offensive acquisitions,” says Lindquist.
