Apr '14
The first quarter was a good one for Trelleborg. Once again, both operating profit and operating margin set new all-time records, reaching the highest levels ever for the Group in a single quarter. The Group reported organic sales growth of 2 percent, with variation among our business areas.
 
“We can see that our cost and capital-efficiency programs are continuing to yield favorable results, and the integration and development of our acquired companies are progressing satisfactorily”, says Peter Nilsson, President and CEO.
 
“Efforts to generate growth via organic initiatives and bolt-on acquisitions are ongoing. We are also focusing intently on making it easy for customers to do business with us. To succeed in this endeavor, we must be innovative and at the forefront in terms of the use of new technologies in our interaction with customers. Combined with a focus on innovation in several dimensions, this forms the basis for increased value creation and our position as a premium partner to our customers.
 
“The market outlook remains difficult to predict. As yet, we have not received any indication of a general improvement in the demand situation. For the second quarter, our overall assessment is that demand will be on par with the first quarter of the year. We are continuing to carefully monitor the economic developments and are maintaining high preparedness to address fluctuating market conditions”.
