Strategy

Achieving sustainable and profitable growth

Aalberts Industries wants to be a leading, innovative company, recognised by our customers because of our market-oriented application expertise, innovation speed, core technologies and combined (system) offerings.

The value creation for the end user is the driver for sustainable profitable growth. This process is accelerated by cross-selling of systems and technologies, operational excellence and growth initiatives, Key Account Management and sharing best practices, combined with our worldwide network of (production) locations.

We focus on achieving sustainable and profitable growth, both organically and through acquisitions and aim for a continued strengthening of our (leading) market positions and an improvement of the operating margin. The initiative for this strategy is driven by the holding company, assisted by the business management teams and group companies.

Structure
