From being a small Swedish family business Perstorp has grown into a world leading specialty chemicals Group with about 1,600 employees and manufacturing units in Asia, Europe and North America. Annual turnover in 2017 was SEK 13.6 billion. The Perstorp Group is controlled by the French private equity fund PAI partners since 2005.
Perstorp’s success and long-term profitable growth are based on four strategic drivers:
• Care 365
• Customer centricity
• Product and market leadership
• Leverage integrated platforms
Care 365: Perstorp is a caring company where all employees are given the opportunity to perform at their full potential in a healthy and safe environment. We make no compromises on health or safety to increase business performance. The capability to lead health and safety is an entrance ticket to becoming a manager, and Perstorp serves as a role model for other companies.
Customer centricity: Perstorp has different business processes for different customer’s needs, and develops and focuses its efforts on selected market segments. The customer’s experience with Perstorp should be as seamless as possible at every touchpoint, and we stand ready to transform new customer behaviors into new business opportunities. Our customers and stakeholders have strong positive brand associations based on real experiences.
Product and market leadership: We build and defend our leading global market positions and look for new development opportunities along the value chain. Innovation based on products and processes is primarily made in the intersection between customers’ needs and technology, and we continuously explore and develop more sustainable products and solutions.
Leverage integrated platforms: We work to debottleneck our production and expand capacity by developing the full potential of our selected technology platforms. Operations will become increasingly safe, lean, reliable and efficient due to efficiently executed technical development projects.
