At the meeting, Lars Renström, President and CEO, summarized Alfa Laval’s development in 2014, a year which – despite waning optimism regarding the global economy – resulted in very strong order intake and sales. Contributing to the positive development was among others, a very strong order intake from the ship building industry as well as a very good demand from areas relating to oil and gas. Furthermore, he talked about Alfa Laval’s biggest acquisition, that of Frank Mohn AS – a Norwegian supplier of pumping systems for the marine industry and offshore market.
