Trelleborg: Interim report and Year-end report 2020

“Strong end to the year – toward a better 2021”

“Like most companies in 2020, Trelleborg was impacted to a high degree by the ongoing pandemic. Priority was assigned to measures to protect our personnel, while we succeeded in offsetting the reduction in sales through a flexible cost base and structural improvements. Despite the circumstances, we were able to deliver a good result, with an improved operating margin and record-strong cash flow compared with 2019, for both the full year and the fourth quarter.

Our employees at all levels of the Group have made the best of a difficult situation and we have adapted our operations and way of working in line with the new reality in an exemplary fashion. Our decentralized approach enabled rapid operational action throughout the organization.

We closed 2020 with a strong quarter. Organic sales declined by 3 percent, meaning that demand continued to improve sequentially. We had a strong currency headwind, which accounted for a 7-percent fall in sales. Cost reductions and structural improvements during the year, combined with slightly better demand, led to the best fourth quarter to date for the Group, in terms of both EBIT and operating margin. This favorable result was achieved despite a negative currency impact on EBIT amounting to SEK 96 M. Cash flow was even stronger, namely the strongest ever for a single quarter.

That said, we continued to be affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. Local outbreaks…

Trelleborg Adds COMFORT Line to its Brawler HPS Range for Telehandlers

Trelleborg Wheel Systems has expanded its Brawler HPS (High Performance Solid) Telehandler Tire range to include the COMFORT line, which offers tires engineered to reduce vibration and improve the driving experience of telehandlers and compact wheel loaders in waste and recycling applications. This new line of solid tires maximizes ride comfort, while delivering the best possible performance in demanding environments.

Alessio Bucci, Product Marketing Senior Manager at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, says: “Waste and recycling applications are extremely demanding on tires, which are at risk of being damaged or punctured during operations. Standard solid tires give increased safety and require zero maintenance, but this often comes at the expense of operator comfort. Now, with the introduction of Trelleborg’s COMFORT line for telehandlers and compact wheel loaders, drivers will experience a softer ride thanks to increased shock absorption and reduced vibration.”

Trelleborg Interim Report: July – September 2020

“During the third quarter, sales declined 12 percent, of which organic sales declined 7 percent. Exchange rate effects had a negative impact on sales of 5 percentage points. EBIT, excluding items affecting comparability, declined 4 percent, corresponding to an operating margin of 12.9 percent (11.7). The operating margin for our core businesses amounted to 13.7 (13.3). Operating cash flow, in relation to operating profit, was strengthened significantly. …

We see today that new local restrictions are being imposed as the spread of the infection continues. We foresee a tougher climate during the fourth quarter of the year, not least in the oil & gas segment, and a recovery in the aerospace segment will not occur until further into the future. We continue to adapt to the constantly changing conditions and we are doing this well. However, our general assessment in the current situation is that demand for the fourth quarter will be on a par with the third quarter”, says Peter Nilsson, President and CEO.
