Strategic aquisition in the German market

Germany is by far Europe's largest spring market. Lesjöfors now gears up to increase its presence in this market through the acquisition of spring producer Stumpp + Schule GmbH. The company is located near Stuttgart and manufactures springs and strip components. Production also takes place in a subsidiary in Slovakia.

"This is a strategically important acquisition. The acquisition is in accordance with our strategy to have strong market positions in selected markets", says Lesjöfors' CEO Kjell-Arne Lindäck.

The Lesjöfors Way - International success thanks to local decision making

Our group is growing steadily outside of Sweden. International sales the last 20 years has increased from 40 to 80 percent. We grow both organically, by expanding our existing operations and through acquisitions in strategically important markets.

The fact that decisions are made on site by those who know their customers best, is one of the keys to our success. Another corner stone is to recruit the right management people with strong roots in the local market. Not only with expertise in their field, they are also culture bearers of Lesjöfors' philosophy of high productivity, cost control, profitability and growth.

It is with great humility, we integrate the acquired companies. Our philosophy is to take advantage of the best that both parties can contribute with to increase market shares. We do not always have the right answers, and must listen carefully to companies coming into the group. It has proved a successful approach and we will continue along this path.

Lesjöfors praises business in Latvia

This year's Elmia Subcontractor Fair in Jönköping, Sweden has Latvia as a partner country. A country that previously was associated with low-cost, but also offers extensive knowledge.

For Lesjöfors, the business in Latvia has been essential for the whole Group's overall development in the world. Success factors are the geographic location close to Sweden and the qualified staff available.

Lesjöfors is since many years one of the exhibitors at Elmia Subcontractor. Meet us there November 6-9!
