Ahlsell, turnover up by 12%

Ahlsell, one of the leading technical trading companies in Scandinavia, managed to raise its turnover by 12% in the..............

9 months January to September 2017 in comparison with the same period last year to SEK 19,879 m (EUR 2,007 m). Profits after tax amounted to SEK 966 m (EUR 97.5 m).

Sweden was again the driving force with a growth of 13%, which was partly due to the opening of a central warehouse in Hallsberg. In Norway the growth rate was 8%, and building construction is at its highest level for 40 years. Finland is continuing its positive development, but still less strongly than the other markets.

By means of takeovers it has been possible to enlarge the customer base and a further upturn is expected in the next quarters.
