2015 was the best year ever for Danfoss Semco
We need a strong performance, so we can invest in the future
Danfoss Semco has, over the past four years, been on a journey to transform the company to be at the absolute forefront of the water mist business. Not only have we increased our gross profit by 74% during this period, but we have also significantly improved delivery performance while launching a range of new products.
At the same time we have invested heavily in product development and approvals. In 2015 we had our highest investment rate ever.
As the market continues to grow we will see more and more standards being implemented. We see this as a natural evolution that ensures that only high quality manufacturers, like Danfoss Semco, that focus on safety and performance, are allowed to supply fire fighting systems. Furthermore it provides documentation of the superior performance of the High Pressure Water mist technology.
However fire testing is very costly, ranging from 0.5mio. EUR for small tests to in excess of 3mio.EUR for larger tests. So for Danfoss Semco to stay at the forefront we need superior performance in all aspects of our business.
