The achieved results are both encouraging and motivating to maintain the growth in the coming years “- said Piotr Szczeblewski, President of the Management Board of PROJPRZEM MAKRUM S.A

In the segment of docking solutions, revenues increased by 19.4% to the level of PLN 110.4 million, while the operating result was at the level of PLN 12.6 million (+ 80.6%). The steel structure segment contributed PLN 60.5 million (a 135% increase), while in the industrial construction segment, revenues amounted to PLN 25 million, which is more than a 10-fold increase y/y. In addition, in 2017, the value of exports increased by 30%.
“The most profitable branch of our operations are currently docking solutions. Their growth should remain dynamic, in connection with the growth on logistics market and the development of e-commerce in Poland. We also focus on strengthening the PROMStahl brand on the international docking solutions market”- comments President Szczeblewski.
The most important events of the past year included the September finalization of the sale of an unprofitable factory in Sępólno Krajeńskie. The transaction amounted to almost PLN 16 million. The company focused on the development of a key production plant in Koronowo near Bydgoszcz, which has the potential to accumulate production and its further, gradual increase. In 2017, the company developed automation of production processes, including the usage of specialized welding robots.
The company also intensively developed the concept of MODULO automatic systems. In 2017, the first revenues in this segment were obtained as a result of many months of work related to the technical and marketing preparation of a wide range of parking systems. The dynamic increase in sales revenues in this area is a strategic challenge for the Group.
