Annual Report 2019: Arjo enables mobility throughout the care process
Arjo today publishes its 2019 Annual Report, providing insights regarding the company's operations and initiatives to create value for healthcare. Continued strong growth in North America and Rest of the World, solid results from efficiency measures, and a strengthened offering, including acquisitions and partnerships, were some of the success factors in 2019.
”In 2019 we continued to develop the business and deliver on our Arjo 2020 plan. We have gained traction in the market and reported stable growth in the year, with the Group growing organically by nearly 4%. In parallel, we have been working on updating our strategy to build the future Arjo. I see strong commitment and a high activity level among our employees, with efficiency within the Group and entire value chain as a top priority,” says Joacim Lindoff, President & CEO.
Arjo has for many years emphasized the importance of mobility throughout the healthcare process, with increased mobility driving a chain reaction of positive results for both the patient, care professionals, and ultimately also the healthcare providers. In this year's report, you can read about Arjo's philosophy, knowledge and offering that contributes to increased mobility.
“We are proud of the results presented in our Annual Report, but I also want to take the opportunity to highlight the commitment and hard work the organization is doing to help our clients manage the ongoing Corona crisis. In this situation, it has become evident that Arjo is an important partner to healthcare systems,” adds Joacim Lindoff.
This year's edition includes both a printed and a digital version. The printed version of the Annual Report will soon be distributed to those shareholders who have placed an order for it. It is also possible to order a printed version of the Annual Report via www.arjo.com.
