Elanders’ business concept is to be a global, strategic and long-term partner to our customers in their work to streamline and develop their business critical processes.
Develop local customers with global needs to global customers
Elanders expands and develops with our customers. Our global business often evolves by building up solid relationships by providing good solutions for local needs that customers then implement globally. In order to increase global solution sales Elanders works systematically on developing our existing customer base in every segment and spotting local customers with global needs. The Group’s global customers may also have local needs that we identify and develop to augment local deliveries.
Elanders has operations and offices in many parts of the world. An important success factor is optimizing our capacity utilization in each unit. We achieve this by regularly measuring available capacity, follow-up of actual outcomes, flexible pricing and continuously making organizational adjustments.
Acquisitions that lead to expansion
In addition to developing our existing business Elanders will continue to acquire new businesses that have the potential to increase sales, broaden our customer base and complement our integrated offer. Acquisitions are particularly prioritized in supply chain management to broaden or supplement our range and, if possible, provide Elanders with further niche expertise. We are also interested in acquisitions that provide access to new geographic markets or customer segments.
- Sales growth of 3-5 percent annually
- EBITA margin of at least 7 percent
- Return on capital employed of at least 10 percent
- Net debt / EBITDA quota no higher than 3
EBITA refers to operating result adjusted for amortization on assets identified in conjunction with acquisitions. The goal for net debt / EBITDA ratio of 3 may temporarily be exceeded if major acquisitions are made.
