Fredrik Meuller, Business Area President. 

Fredrik Meuller Business Area PresidentDescribe what characterizes your business area.
We are a dedicated project-based operation and our solutions are designed to perform in the toughest of environments where there is no room for error. Customers feel secure in the knowledge that Trelleborg has so many well-functioning solutions already installed and such a comprehensive list of references in its respective niches. Often there are no industry standards, so customers must feel confident that Trelleborg can tailor effective solutions that meet project requirements without re-inventing the wheel.

Name a technological highlight of the year.
I want to mention the technologies and products we acquired in 2015.

One of these operations designs and manufactures marine fender systems and other quay accessories.

The other operation is a market leader in marine navigation and piloting systems, primarily specializing in the development of software used for docking or mooring vessels offshore or in ports.

Together, these strengthen Trelleborg’s offering as an attractive turnkey supplier of marine docking and mooring solutions for ports and vessels, regardless of whether it is for owners or captains/pilots.

What will be the key development areas in the years ahead?
To say the least, it has been a challenging  market situation in oil & gas during the year, with a significantly lower world market price for oil and major uncertainty concerning demand. We have managed, and will continue to manage the situation while also preparing ourselves for a recovery, through innovative solutions and applying the right structure.

Generally, we have strong potential to continue to grow organically, given the positive long-term macroeconomic fundamentals – in global terms, there is a major need for investment in energy and infrastructure, both in mature markets (Europe) and in high-growth markets (Asia, South America).
