Annual Integrated Report 2021: Growing opportunities
Nevertheless, we can close the year with positive results thanks to the hard work of our entire global team. We look forward with confidence as a financially sound and innovative actuator company with a keen focus on actuators that help enable the global energy transition.
Fostering the broad energy transition
As a global actuator company, all our Business Groups focus on delivering smart actuator products that support the broad energy transition away from oil, natural gas, and coal, towards cleaner forms of energy. Pursuing a leading role in this global transition provides us with a strong proposition today and for the future.
Our industrial brakes are used in applications such as robotics, wind power, intra-logistics solutions (such as AGVs and electric forklift trucks), and more. For instance, our Industrial Actuators and Controls (IAC) Business Group produces modular, electrified induction heating systems that aim to deliver similar benefits on an industrial scale to those you see in home appliances. In Automotive, our smart actuators for ACES (Autonomous, Connected, Electric and Shared) vehicles help enable electrified and autonomous driving.
Impressive results despite unpredictability
In this business environment we delivered good results. I am proud of what we have achieved as a team in these extraordinary and unpredictable circumstances. As a Group, we increased our revenue by 17% to EUR 464 million compared to 2020. Our normalized net profit before amortization increased by 76% to EUR 20.6 million.
