Staffan Johansson, President of Beijer Tech:

Strong profitability development

Strong profitability development in the core business, but also profitable growth through the company acquisitions made in new industries. This is how CEO Staffan Johansson summarizes the development in Beijer Tech.

What has characterized 2022?

Beijer Tech had a fantastic year. We increased both sales and profit in all operations. The fact that it is precisely the whole business that has lifted feels extra good. Demand has been strong and this indicates that we have not been directly affected by the poorer economy that was talked about during the year. We benefit from the fact that Beijer Tech has a broad customer base, which makes us resilient even when times get worse.

You make acquisitions in niche technologies – what is the requirements?

We have a clear plan regarding new acquisitions. And the fact that we are consistent is, I believe, one of the reasons why the acquisitions in recent years have been so good. We look for companies  here the owners have the right attitude and the business structure suits us, for example in the form of a diversified customer and supplier base. As I now see it, it is a matter of sticking to the strategy we have laid down and continuing the set path.
