Recession

The consequences of the recession will also be noticeable in the construction sector in 2016. The government and companies are not investing as much. For a large percentage of its sales, Strukton depends on orders tendered by public and semi-public authorities. Delays in political decision-making processes and adjustments to the government’s investment budgets affect the size and number of orders to be awarded.

Strukton closely monitors the development of the order portfolio and the activity level in relation to the size of its organisation to enable the implementation of appropriate measures in due course. Extra vigilance relating to solvency is required in the event of payment risks, where supplementary guarantees are frequently asked, and transferring risks within the chain to subcontractors and suppliers. In order to limit its vulnerability to fluctuations in the economic climate, Strukton undertakes to create a situation where long-term, repetitive orders form a substantial part of sales.
