Hexagon receives increased volumes at Alfa Laval

12 September 2002

HEXAGON RECEIVES INCREASED VOLUMES AT ALFA LAVAL Alfa Laval, that among others are world leaders in heat exchangers, has decided to increase the purchase volumes from their main supplier of heat exchanger gaskets, Gislaved Gummi AB. The decision means a volume increase corresponding to about 25 MSEK per year, which will be placed at Gislaved, beginning already in September this year. The production volume will be split between Gislaved´s Swedish unit and the unit in Sri Lanka. This means that Gislaved will further strengthen their position within this niche area, where they already are the global market leaders. "We see this decision as a confirmation that our focus during the last years on increased capacity and logistic solutions now starts to give results. In the future we also expect to take further market shares within the gasket area" says Lars Olofsson, President of Gislaved Gummi. Gislaved Gummi is a part of Hexagon Engineering.
