Events during the first quarter and after end of the quarter

  • On April 8, Balco acquired RK Teknik AB, with net sales in 2020 of 115 MSEK and an operating profit of 10 MSEK. The acquisition strengthens and complements Balco Group’s product range and customer offering and means that City balconies will now be introduced on the Swedish market, a product segment that has so far only been sold in Denmark.
  • Covid-19 with a continued high spread of infection has affected order intake, net sales and profit in the first quarter and will continue to affect net sales and profit in the coming quarters.
