Bladt Industries focuses on growth
In 2015, Bladt Industries had a revenue of nearly 3 billion kroner and an operating profit of 103,5 million kroner, and 2016 looks to be even better. So far, Bladt Industries has shipped three transformer stations this year, and 2016 looks to be a good year.
"It looks reasonable and we are positioned as we expected. This means that we expect 2016 to end pointed upward compared to 2015, when discussing results," says Jan Kjærsgaard, Director of Bladt Industries.
Bladt Industries has managed to position itself as a leader when it comes to the production of foundations and transformer stations for offshore wind farms, and that part takes up most of Bladts business. As late as yesterday, Bladt Industries sent a transformer station off to the Belwind offshore wind farm, located in the North Sea 45 kilometers from the Belgian coast.
"Offshore wind looks good in the coming years, and we're including foundations, monopiles, jacket foundations and transformer stations. It looks reasonable until 2020, but also the time after," says Jan Kjærsgaard.
Northern Europe is the largest market for Bladt Industries, but the North Jutland company also keeps an eye on developments in the US market.
"Northern Europe is and has been the largest market, but we are also looking beyond that and look at when we can get something going in the United States, and we are also looking at some things in Asia," says Jan Kjærsgaard.
