Lindab's Annual Report 2011 has been published

April 4, 2012 - London

Lindab has today published its annual report for 2011. It is now available in web format and as a pdf on the corporate website,

Lindab's President and CEO David Brodetsky summarises the challenges for 2012:

"The focus for 2012 is on further strengthening our competitiveness to reach the near term EBIT-target of a 10 percent run rate by the end of 2013 and for the full year 2014. Two focus areas are prioritised:

  1. Ensure the implementation of the cost saving programme that will save around SEK 150 million annually. The programme is aimed at aligning the business to current demand levels, improve efficiency and reduce the company's fixed costs.

  2. Focus on prioritised markets, customers and various sales initiatives that will boost sales and increase market shares despite more or less flat demand. This means continuing to develop solutions that simplify construction for our customers.

2012 will be a challenging but fascinating year for Lindab. We have a team that has performed well during the downturn, and with Lindab's entrepreneurial spirit I am convinced that we will deliver going forward," concludes David Brodetsky.
Hard copies of the annual report are available at Lindab's Head Office.
