In the second quarter Inwido increased turnover by 16.9% to SEK2.009bn. This means the group achieved quarterly turnover of more than SEK2bn for the first time. The increase was mainly due to organic growth (+19%). The takeover of Metallityö Välimäki (MV Center) also made a small contribution to the increase to a small extent (+1%). A negative effect on turnover development ensued from unfavourable currency effects.
According to company information, Inwido also recorded peak figures for orders in hand as well as results. In the period covered by the report, incoming orders rose by around 32% compared to the previous year.
