UK Department of Communities and Local Government issues post-Grenfell fire guidance. ROCKWOOL welcomes the guidance while raising concerns about the tests on which it’s based and advocating for changes in UK building regulations.
First half sales growth and positive market conditions give confidence for an upgraded outlook for the year. CEO Jens Birgersson comments on the second-quarter results announced today: "Overall, we're pleased with our H1 and Q2 2017 results. For the half-year, net sales increased 5.0% and EBIT margin reached almost 10%. As expected, the sales price increases we're implementing are beginning to show. Pricing will continue to be a major focus going forward, and we see positive market developments in the second half of the year, including an increasing interest for fire safe stone wool products. With better visibility for the remainder of the year, we are also increasing our guidance for sales growth".
