Halton Group Accelerated its Growth in 2012
Despite the uncertain global economic climate, 2012 was one of the most successful years in Halton’s history. The company’s sales increased by 16 percent compared to the previous year, reaching the figure of 168 million euros. Also the operating profit improved and was 13 million euros.
Halton Group specializes in indoor climate and indoor environmental products, services and solutions. The company is organized in three strategic business areas providing solutions for public and commercial buildings, commercial kitchens and restaurants, as well as for marine and off-shore applications. The Finnish, family-owned company has operations in Europe and the Middle-East, the Americas, and Asia.
- We are particularly satisfied by the fact that all of our business areas and regions were growing and profitable, says Mika Halttunen, Chairman of the Board at Halton Group.
Halton has continuously strengthened its presence globally; in average it has extended its operations to one or two new countries per year. However, recently the company has established sales units in Brazil, Philippines, Saudi-Arabia, and Turkey, as well as created a joint venture, Halton-Innes SA, in Mexico to serve the Spanish speaking Latin American countries. The company is also investing in Finland by opening a new manufacturing facility for air filtration production in 2013 next to its existing facilities in Kausala.
- The foundation of our growth is our deep commitment to research, product development and innovation. Our R&D centers on three continents enable us to carry out testing of new products and customized solutions for customers. Halton also works in close collaboration with leading universities and research centers to be able to apply the latest knowledge in the field to benefit our customers, Halttunen explains.
- There is a growing demand for services which help create comfortable and safe indoor environments that have an energy-efficient and sustainable life cycle. In addition, the operations in different business areas and regions support and balance each other during economic cycles - this is another factor contributing to Halton’s success, Halttunen concludes.
Halton Group aims to continue growing in 2013. The company is targeting especially the emerging markets, such as Asia and Latin America.
