“The year ended with a strong fourth quarter. Excellent customer demand ensured the growth of the turnover with 18 % from the previous year with 6.6 % operating profit. During the whole year 2017, we went firmly forward; turnover grew 4.3 % and reported operating profit 31.3 million euro more than quadrupled compared to 2016. We managed to reach our targeted about 6% operating profit level for the whole year. Net cash flow from operating activities increased by 29% and return on equity was 22.2%,” commented CEO, Petteri Jokitalo, in the fiscal report.

“We made headway in the implementation of our strategy. The optimization of the factory network was completed already in the first half of the year which now can be seen in lower cost structure and cost-benefits. Our investments were record-high; the extension of the electronics factory in Sieradz was completed in December, and our integration factory in Atlanta moved to a bigger facility during the summer. In practice, we doubled our space in both of these factories,” Jokitalo continues.

During the year the company also made investments to keep growing. Scanfil added new SMT-lines in its factories in Suzhou, Sieradz and Malmö. And according to the company, the Investments were based on already visible customer demand.
