Financial goals - strategy and value creation

Nederman's mission is to protect people, products and our planet from the harmful effects of industrial processes. In this way, we help to create safe work spaces, efficient production and significant environmental benefits. Clean air is the cornerstone of sustainable production.

Fumes and particles generated during the manufacturing process must be efficiently captured to safeguard product quality, the service life of equipment, compliance with environmental regulations, and to maintain safe and healthy workplaces. Manufacturing companies want to increase profitability by making their operations as efficient as possible. They must meet strict environmental requirements and protect their employees from hazardous particles. Nederman can help them on all counts - it’s how we create value.
