Group Strategy &  Strategic Cornerstones

Trelleborg’s strategy is to strengthen positions in selected attractive and profitable market segments to create ever-improving value for the Group’s stakeholders. 

Four strategic cornerstones support the Group’s core strategy:

  • Geographic balance

Trelleborg focuses on increasing its presence in selected countries in order to be close to its customers and follow them in their globalization processes and to develop local customer relationships.

  • Portfolio optimization

Leading positions are achieved through focused organic growth and bolt-on acquisitions. Trelleborg invests in market segments or niches where there is potential to become one of the top three largest manufacturers

  • Structural improvements

Trelleborg invests in new technology and machinery, human capital, international management, local managers and development of local markets, all with the aim of improving and honing structures.

  • Excellence

Trelleborg works proactively and systematically to enhance its core processes. The objective is excellence; to eliminate all types of waste, and to instead use these resources to continuously improve operation and profitability.
