Thanks for a fine 2022
Now that the year is drawing to a close and we find ourselves in the midst of war, financial crises, materials shortages, and insecure energy supplies, it is with a sense of humble pride that we can say that Weland Solutions has still managed to increase its turnover by just over 30%. For the fifth year in a row! This incredible achievement is due to you, our employees, customers, and resellers – thank you!
Now in 38 countries
Of course, our successes are also the result of some commercially strategic choices. By building a reseller network that now comprises 18 different dealers in some 38 countries, we have managed to create a stability that reduces our sensitivity to local difficulties. This has given us the muscle to develop into an increasingly bigger player on the global market. During the year, we successfully established dealer/reseller presences in the USA, China, and Europe. Our Compact Lift, Compact Twin, and Compact Double systems have proved to be extremely popular, particularly for internal logistics within the manufacturing industry, as well as with the growing band of e-commerce companies.
Production investments in Sweden
We continue to maintain our strong market position in Sweden, and are investing even more in both product and production development. In order to secure supply to satisfy the ever-increasing demand for out products, we have doubled the amount of floor space available in our production facilities in Gislaved. The now 12,000 sq. m production facility is already ISO certified and in full operation. We have also opened a new office dedicated to IT development in Karlshamn. It is home to a strong in-house IT team that is fully focused on improving our software – for both PC and PLC.
I think the year can be summed up best as one of steadily increasing sales, with an excellent outlook as we head into 2023. With the strong backing of the Weland Group, you can rely on us and our products, now and in the future.
Thank you for being with us and making invaluable contributions on this journey of success, all of which has inspired us to develop and evolve!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Björn Karlsson, CEO Weland Solutions
