Lars Corneliusson, CEO Ferronordic, comments: "The second quarter was the strongest quarter so far in Ferronordic's history, with revenue of SEK 817m and operating profit of SEK 68m. This was partly a result of improved gross margin, much thanks to our business in contracting services, and partly our work to improve efficiency that continues to bear fruit. We also continue to expand the organization and develop our network. During the quarter, for example, we opened a new service station for trucks and construction machines in Rostov-on-Don, employing about 30 new employees, mainly mechanics. In view of the recent recovery of Russia's economy, we are still optimistic about the development of the underlying market, especially in the light of the so-called May decrees which indicate significantly increased infrastructure investments in the coming years."
