Our strategy until 2023 is named Core+
At our core, we are a sourcing & services company. At the same time we capture two powerful trends in our markets: Digital and green. That is our +
Solar is a digital business. We have the highest digital order share. We have successfully upgraded both our webshop and our warehouse management systems. Everyone has improved their digital skills – and with Covid-19, we have learned to work together digitally in new ways. Our digital mindset is a clear strength in helping our customers to be more productive. Not least in the years to come.
We have worked with sustainability for many years, and we want to make a big effort in running a responsible and sustainable business – reducing waste and saving energy. At the same time, our customers are increasingly involved in green projects: installing new climate & energy solutions like heat pumps, EV chargers and Solar panels. Green is a big business opportunity for Solar.
Our four focuses
Core+ builds on our solid progress in recent years, with stronger execution of better business. We focus on 4 strategic ‘growth and profit drivers’ – Industry, Trade, Climate & Energy and Concepts.
Strategic focus - Concepts and Trade
Customers, markets and the demands presented to us are constantly changing.
As a sourcing and services company, we have to be ready to adapt to shifting circumstances. Trade and Concepts are good examples of how we do this.
More than 27% of core revenue derives from Industry, which comprises four subsegments: Infrastructure, Maintenance, Repair & Operations (MRO), Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and Marine & Offshore.
Industry customers appreciate the breadth and depth of our product assortment as well as our digital integrated services, which leads to long-term contract relationships.
To the right are two examples of our efforts in the industry segment.
