This is ProfilGruppen
A niche aluminium company
ProfilGruppen is a Swedish company that develops and manufactures customized aluminium extrusions and components. By delivering clever solutions in aluminium, we are contributing to our customers’ success. Our business is characterized by personal dedication, speed, responsiveness, professionalism and continuous improvement. Currently, the Group has approximately 450 employees and the headquarter is located in Åseda. Our customers are in a wide variety of industries and mainly in the Northern European market.
Aluminium – the material of the future
We are working with one of the world’s greatest materials – aluminium. Aluminium, the third most common element in the earth’s crust after oxygen and silicon, is low weight, good strength and good durability. It offers excellent corrosion resistance and is easy to work and use, particularly in a construction environment. Furthermore, its good recycling properties guarantee a low environmental impact.
Processed products in focus
We are aiming to increase the share of processed products, which should promote greater profitability and a larger marketfor the company. Processing is performed partly in-house and partly by a network of external suppliers. The production facilities for manufacture and processing of aluminium extrusions are modern and cost-effective, and offer high productivity.
Improved positions on the European market
Our chief market is Northern Europe, and we intend to increase our market presence and grow at a faster rate than the market.
Stable and profit-generating business
ProfilGruppen is a profitable company. Our sensitivity to economic trends is moderated by the fact that our customers are from several different industries and operate on different markets, as well as that our product mix contains products with a varying degree of processing.
Our overall aim is to give our shareholders a high total yield, partly through share dividends and partly through increased share value. Our dividend policy is to distribute 40-50 per cent of the profit after tax calculated over an economic cycle.
