 CEO Erik Stenfors comments on the report

During the quarter, we took an important and exciting step in the Group's development as we established HANZA in the German market through the acquisition of RITTER. This gives us access to a whole new customer market that fits HANZA’s manufacturing concept.”  

”The acquisition of RITTER is part of our ”Strategy 2022” which is our business plan for the period 2018-2022. Several important parts of this strategy have already been implemented during the year; in addition to RITTER, the acquisition of Toolfac in January and the listing on NASDAQ’s main market in March. HANZA is continuing its rapid development towards the target of being a leading European manufacturing partner within a few years.”  

”The Nordic segment continues to show an industry-leading operating margin of 8.1% while the Rest of the World segment has a continued low operating margin, 2.4%, as a consequence of ongoing efficiency improvement programs. Since the major projects in Strategy 2022 are already in their final phase, profitability for the HANZA Group is expected to increase by the beginning of 2020.” 

“The need for a new strategy for the manufacturing industry is growing and it is further accelerated by the increasing environmental awareness of many product companies. HANZA has during a short period of time, established a new, global manufacturing solution that meets this demand. Thus, there is great potential, especially in view of our launch in Germany.”
