Fortaco was extraordinary busy during the first half of 2021
The order intake is record high, and company can still see +50% growth in order intake, which will contribute to record high turnover in 2021.

Customers and the market talks about e-mobility and fossil free steel of the future. Company is digitalizing operations to make them more simple and more efficient.
We still experience the Corona pandemic around us. Fortaco has managed the situation fairly good, our teams at factories have managed to secure operations with limited impacts. I appreciate the open and constructive dialogue with customers.Lars Hellberg

Commitment to safety
Fortaco employees committed on safety. As we know, initially safety is to secure right equipment, however, the most important is the individual behavior and endless commitment: stop – think – act, on a continuous basis. Company have moved from having several incidents per month to having several months without incident. This proves it is indeed possible to run with zero incidents. Fortaco Group have launched a Safety Handbook to present the safety strategy.
Master of Flexibility (MoF) is a key strategic cornerstone for our success. We expect MoF to be a critical success factor for Fortaco for many years to come, because the possibilities for improvement are endless, and our customers’ requirements continuously change. Together with customers, we have reduced lead-time from several weeks to several days. We have also launched a Master of Flexibility Handbook, and our plan is to run an intensive in-house training in the second half of 2021.Lars Hellberg
