“Our business has continued to develop in the right strategic direction during
2013. We have seen continued strong growth on markets in the Asia-Pacific and
Americas regions, and in Europe we have noticed the first signs of
“At Gunnebo, we are working to move the point of gravity in relation to three
aspects of our business: geographical focus, resource allocation and value
“Geographically, we are moving the Group’s point of gravity to markets where we
see continued growth within our core businesses. For resource allocation, we
have continued to invest in production capacity and quality improvements in the
Asia-Pacific and Americas regions.
“For Gunnebo, moving up the value chain means making the transition from a
product supplier to a solutions provider. The first important step in this
direction was already made several years ago when we established a global
business area for services. As a part of this, we defined our service portfolio

“Another important aspect of moving up the value chain is of course how we
develop our business proposition. During 2013 we launched several new products
and systems, some of which we have chosen to show you during our Capital Market
“For Gunnebo, 2014 will mean continuing down the road to delivering improved
financial results. We will continue to move our point of gravity geographically
as well as in terms of how we allocate our resources and move up the value
chain. We will also continue to reduce costs in Europe in order to improve
our gross margins and further strengthen our cash flow.”
