During 2016, Peikko was able to improve its profitability back to a normal level. This was helped by consolidation activities made in 2015, the good market situation, and successful sales activities leading to a good business volume. Peikko’s total investments in 2016 amounted to EUR 8.0 million (MEUR 6.0). The largest on-going investments are the construction of a new DELTABEAM® factory in Kaunas, Lithuania, and the acquisition of new factory premises in St. Petersburg, Russia.
In 2016, Peikko introduced several new technologies to the market, including a seismic-proof bolted column connection, ARMATA Punching Reinforcement, and the moment-resistant BECO®–COPRA® connection for precast frames. Peikko was the first concrete connection technology provider to enable direct data transfer from a structural design calculation software to a BIM software – from Peikko’s own design software Peikko Designer® into Tekla Structures, making designing significantly faster and easier.
Topi Paananen, CEO, Peikko Group Corporation, says: "The start of 2017 looks positive and our order book remains strong in all market areas. Our investments into production capacity and efficiency as well as research and product development will be the highest ever in 2017."
