The Sandefjord-based technology company GSGroup increased revenues by 4.7 per cent to NOK 246 million in 2018. Profit before depreciation, write-downs and financial expenses (EBITDA) was NOK 32.1 million, an increase of 11 per cent.
- 2018 was a positive year for GSGroup. Despite tough competition in the market, we have managed to increase sales and achieve a better market position in almost all of the countries we are represented in, says CEO Espen Virik Ranvik of GSGroup.
GSGroup is a leading European supplier, which since the early 1990s has worked and developed advanced sensor technology for fleet management and electronic travel log. In addition, the company has order management tools that simplify the job for craftsmen and others. The sensor technology encompasses a wide range of products and has increasingly been used to monitor temperature and humidity in the
transport of medicines and food.
- Our services cover a wide range of products, but we see that more and more customers are choosing us as a total supplier. For example, several large companies use both fleet management, mobile order handling and our tracking services, says Virik Ranvik.
In total, GSGroup has offices in 14 different locations in nine countries. In addition to the head office in Sandefjord, the company is established with offices in Oslo, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Esbjerg, Tallinn, Riga, Vilnius, Dortmund, Hamburg, Budapest, Tampere and Vantaa.
GSGroup implemented a number of strategic measures in 2018, including the establishment of a business unit for sensor solutions in Hamburg, as well as the acquisition of Danish Care4All and its subsidiary Flextrack. The acquisition strengthens the company's position in the market further, and will benefit the customer in several ways, Virik Ranvik tells.
- Our products make it easier to optimize the use of resources, thereby reducing both costs and CO2 emissions. Sustainability is becoming more important for our customers and is a driver for growth in the years to come, says Virik Ranvik.
