Balco starts production and delivery of the largest order in the company’s history

Balco is now starting production and delivery of the order for glazed balconies in Östersund which is worth approximately SEK 160 million. The order, which already has been included in the company’s order backlog, is the largest in Balco’s 30-year history and will contribute to revenues towards the end of the fourth quarter of 2017 and throughout 2018.  

Balco’s customers have now been granted planning permission, and Balco is starting production of balconies to three tenant-owners’ associations in Östersund. The order, which is worth approximately SEK 160 million, is included in the order backlog that the company reported in the listing prospectus and previous interim report. With the granting of planning permission, the production phase has started and consequently the project will contribute to revenues towards the end of the fourth quarter of 2017 and throughout 2018. The project is expected to be completed at the end of 2018.

‟The order from Östersundshus is yet a further acknowledgement of our strong offering, which provides a number of advantages for the residents. It is pleasing that the implementation of this project coincides with our 30th anniversary. By creating our own market and gaining market shares, we see possibilities to continue our organic growth. This is the case both in the Nordic region, where we are the market leader, and also in the rest of northern Europe”, says Kenneth Lundahl, President and CEO of Balco, in a comment.
