”Demand remained strong in the first quarter of the year. This was mainly due to the transition to a more sustainable society and volatile energy prices. Most Europeans understand that we have to wean ourselves off our dependence on Russian oil and gas and this is further driving demand for our products,” said Gerteric Lindquist, Managing Director & CEO of NIBE.
”The supply chain situation has improved significantly as our sub-suppliers have worked assiduously to adapt to the much higher level of demand and have been able to improve both delivery capacity and delivery reliability. Combined with our own capacity increases, this resulted in a sharp rise in sales in the first quarter. However, a handful of strategic suppliers are still lagging behind in their efforts to increase capacity, which meant that our supply chain disruptions continued in the first quarter. We expect to be able to return to a more normal supply chain situation during the second half of the year.”
”Even though it is difficult to make predictions in the current business climate, we are cautiously optimistic about our full-year performance in 2023 thanks to our geographic spread, focus on corporate responsibility, stable profitability and good financial preparedness for further offensive acquisitions,” said Gerteric Lindquist.
