A more sustainable social order in energy supply, transport and climate control of buildings now seems to be here to stay, which is positive for our business,” said Gerteric Lindquist, CEO of NIBE.“The European market for NIBE Climate Solutions' products, with heat pumps at the forefront, continues its positive progress, while the North American heat pump market for single family homes has been weaker, mainly due to the discontinuation of tax subsidies in the United States.
In an increasing number of countries, like Norway, the Netherlands and the UK, government decisions on the long-term phase-out of fossil fuels creates great potential for Climate Solutions’ products.”
“Volume continues to grow in the NIBE Element business area and its operating margin now steadily exceeds 10%. Behind this success lies things such as the ability to offer a comprehensive, high-quality range of intelligent system solutions with sustainability profiles.”
“After the acquisition of Canadian company FPI almost a year ago, the NIBE Stoves business area has gained a good international reputation and a geographical balance, bringing completely different opportunities for selling European products in North America and vice versa.” “We have a strong product programme and a timely business philosophy that focuses on sustainability and energy efficiency. As in previous years, external factors are difficult to assess, but with our stable profitability and good financial preparedness for further acquisitions, we are cautiously positive about 2017,” said Lindquist.
