“We executed well against our strategies in the 2016 fourth quarter and made further progress against our goals,” said Chris Killingstad, Tennant Company's president and chief executive officer. “We are pleased with our fourth quarter results. As we anticipated, Tennant returned to organic sales growth in the quarter, led by sales in our largest region, the Americas, and growth in EMEA.”
Killingstad added: “As we head into 2017, we are taking bold steps to further ignite growth and increase profitability. To this end, we announced the acquisition of IPC Group to improve our competitive position in the EMEA market. Today, we also announced restructuring actions to better align our resources and expense structure with the current low-growth economic environment. Together, these steps are designed to enhance Tennant’s top- and bottom-line performance.”
Tennant’s core strategies are focused on maintaining a strong new product and technology pipeline and expanding the company’s global market coverage, while leveraging the company’s cost structure to improve operating efficiency.
