The Business Unit Grating technology produces grating applications based on client-specific requirements. Product options are almost unlimited, which means that there are numerous applications in traditional construction as well as in architecture for façade cladding, sun blinds and partition walls. The products include floor gratings, perforated treads, louvre and balcony fencing, expanded metal, Artdeck® and JettyDeck.

“A bold strategic market approach.

Looking back

Revenue in 2018 was up on 2017 but gross margin fell by 3.6 percentage points, partly due to the increase in the purchase price of steel. Given the recovering economy and the centralisation of production capacity, it was expected that the Business Unit Grating technology would have been able to take more advantage of positive economic developments.

Looking ahead

The market where the Business Unit Grating technology operates is characterised by sharp price competition for the standard product. This calls for an unambiguous, more strategic market approach but the local markets each have their own areas requiring attention. For the 2019 financial year, the management expects to improve the ERP programme and achieve further improvements in efficiency.
