Roland Kasper, President and CEO, comments:
“In the third quarter, we returned to organic growth, measured at 1.5 percent, following three consecutive quarters of negative growth. Prior to the pandemic, Systemair showed organic growth for 40 consecutive quarters with one exception. However, demand remains cautious in several markets in Europe in the face of regional restrictions, whereas the North American market continues to perform strongly. Our operating margin improved relative to the preceding year to 5.4 percent, as a result of the costs being adjusted to prevailing circumstances.”
