Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation, comments; "The start of this year is looking positive with our order book at an all-time high. Our main focus is to improve profitability, and further increase our business in line with the improved outlook."
During 2015 Peikko undertook actions to consolidate its businesses. Profitability was adversely affected by issues on some customer projects, discontinuation of some product lines, merging some manufacturing units, and write-offs of both customer receivables and inventory. The actions taken will improve profitability during 2016.
In 2015 Peikko introduced new products to the markets; WELDA® Fastening Plates and OPTIMAJOINT Free Movement Joint. During the year the first highly innovative rock foundation systems for onshore wind turbines were successfully delivered. Also the first technical manuals made according to American ACI standards were published.
Peikko’s total investments in 2015 amounted to EUR 6.0 million (MEUR 7.0). The main investments were made in surface treatment lines for DELTABEAM® production, both in Finland and Slovakia, to meet increased quality, environmental and capacity requirements. There were also several other machinery investments to increase capacity and efficiency in China, the United Arab Emirates, Germany, Finland, Lithuania and Slovakia.
