Season’s Greeting from Niels Aage Kjær
2022 is coming to an end, and it is time to reflect on the year we leave behind and look ahead on the coming year. 20-12-2022
2022 has been a challenging year. Many conditions, which we cannot control, have had an impact on our business as well as in our personal lives. Despite the challenges, we have achieved a great result. Without any compromise, we have been able to support our customers in delivering high quality products to support sustainable development within all our business areas.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers and business partners for their trust in us and for a very successful collaboration in 2022.
In 2022, we achieved the best annual result to date, and it is very positive that the growth is taking place across our three business units: AVK Water, AVK Industrial and AVK Advanced Manufacturing. Our positive development is a result of our long-term strategy and massive investments in our operations, processes, products, business areas and our organisation.
In 2022, we also increased the number of employees by 300 and we are a total of 4,886 employees worldwide. This year’s result would not have been possible without you, our dedicated employees, who cared for our customers, partners and each other in difficult times. This is true team spirit. Every person across the company is part of our great team and contributes to our journey of growth. I would like to thank each of you personally and on behalf of our management team. Thank you for your commitment and your effort.
We expect 2023 to be a challenging year. However, we are well equipped for the future, and we expect growth within our main business areas. Our core values of quality, innovation, reliability, sustainability, and customer service will act as guiding principles for our continuous development and investments in our operations, processes, products, business areas and our employees.
Now it is time take some time off and relax. I hope each of you can spend some time with the people dearest to you.
I wish you all and your families a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2023. And to all of you who do not celebrate, I wish you a peaceful time. I look forward to our collaboration next year.
Niels Aage Kjær, CEO & Owner, the AVK Group
