Strategy

Nilfisk Accelerate Logo
   
‘Accelerate’, Nilfisk’s business strategy for the period 2015-2018
is strongly focused on increasing market share and to consolidate
its market leadership    

Financial targets

  • Organic growth of 2-3% above GDP
  • Return on capital employed of 18-19%
Analyses indicate that the average growth for the industry is slightly below the global GDP growth, due to customers general focus on more cost-effective cleaning solutions. Nilfisk aims to play an active part in the global consolidation of cleaning equipment industry and potential acquisitions are expected to dilute the return on capital employed on the short run, while the integration of the businesses occur.
   
  Nilfisk Accelerate Model

Growth aimed at market leadership

Continued investments in sales and marketing activities in emerging markets will strengthen the company’s reach and position in these markets. Nilfisk also aims to play an active part in the global consolidation of the cleaning equipment industry and continues to seek relevant opportunities for mergers and acquisitions.

Four strategic levers will support the growth initiatives:

  1. Strengthen front-end
  2. Drive competitive offerings
  3. Build strong brands
  4. Power supply chain performance
