KONČAR GROUP 2020+ INTEGRAL STRATEGY

KONČAR Group 2020+ Integral Strategy sets the development direction and the strategic objectives intended to contribute to KONČAR Group utilising all its potentials and defining its strategic priorities for the upcoming period. The strategy includes a compelling new four-year development and investment cycle, improvement of employee qualifications and competencies structure by bringing in significant number of new engineers over the next four years, and a further increase in exports with the opening of new capital markets. By 2024, through expanding the services portfolio and offering integrated solutions that have greater added value, the Group plans to generate consolidated revenue around HRK 4 billion, in terms of organic growth.

Simultaneously with the process of developing the Integral Strategy, the Company’s Management Board continued with implementing changes in the Group’s structure. Companies with similar product ranges were merged, joint venture with the Chinese partner (KONČAR – XD) was wound up in mutual consent of both partners and a new company was established (KONČAR – Digital). The establishment of the new company represented a continuation of developing new solutions that will be in our focus for the next 10+ years. This pertains primarily to digitisation of products, services and business processes.
