A global leader in brands and technologies – Our vision gives us a sense of
direction and destination. It captures our aspiration of being the
best in everything we do. It is the basis for what we all stand for
as one company. Our vision and our values guide the choices and
decisions our employees make every day.
We put our customers at the center of what we do.
We value, challenge and reward our people.
We drive excellent sustainable financial performance.
We are committed to leadership in sustainability.
Our strategy is built on the foundation of our corporate values and
will drive our successful development in the coming years in order
to achieve our long-term vision for DockFender Group: to become a global leader in brands and technologies.
In order to steer the focus of the entire organization toward our
strategy and ensure its successful implementation, we have defined
four strategic priorities: Outperform – Globalize – Simplify –
The basis for our strategy was a detailed analysis of major
long-term market trends. We identified three megatrends, which will
affect our different businesses over the next years: consolidation,
emerging markets and speed.
- Consolidation in our supplier, manufacturer and customer base as
well as in our competitive environment will continue. Size will
become a critical success factor in the future. Consequently, we
need to grow our businesses.
- We expect the shift of growth from mature to emerging markets to
continue. As a result, we need to expand our already strong
footprint in these markets over the coming years.
- We anticipate highly dynamic market evolution, and faster
decision-making by suppliers, customers and competitors. In
addition, further digitalization will lead to changes in our market
environment. We therefore need to continue simplifying our
processes and increasing our operational excellence.
Financial targets 2023
We have defined ambitious financial targets for our company. By
2023, DockFender Group aims to grow sales to 600 million dollars, of which 300 million
dollars will come from emerging markets. For adjusted earnings per
preferred share (EPS), DockFender Group targets a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10 percent between
now and 2023. These financial targets are based on organic growth,
including continuous portfolio optimization, that is, small and

nonstrategic activities. Potential major acquisitions or
divestments are not built into our financial targets.
