BE Group publishes the Annual Report for 2014
BE Group’s Annual Report for 2014 has now been published and is available on the Group’s website, www.begroup.com.
In his Message from the President, Lars Engström states that “For the steel industry and for BE Group, 2014 was a difficult year. Over the year as a whole, no positive trend could be seen in either demand or steel prices. At the same time, the merger of SSAB and Rautaruukki brings a changed competitive environment that generates opportunities for us as an independent actor to break new ground with business solutions tailored to customers’ changing needs.”
In the outlook for 2015, Lars Engström, says: “In our assessment, we will see a slight increase in demand in our markets during 2015. By adding value for our customers in the form of a broad product range, high level of service, short lead times and high delivery accuracy, we perceive opportunities to capture additional market share.”
The printed Annual Report will be available from the second week of April and can be ordered via www.begroup.com or by calling +46 40 38 42 00.
