Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Shareholders,
2015 was a very demanding and difficult year for AL INVEST Břidličná, a.s. Our Company generated CZK 4.44 billion in revenue from good and reached a production volume of 52 774 tonnes. The production volume slightly decreased year- on- year, as a result of the changes in the product portfolio when we cut the sale of metallised paper used in the tobacco industry. On the other hand, we significantly increased the sale of printed aluminium-based packaging and printed plastic packaging. Moreover, in 2015, the price of input material soared, making it difficult to reflect the price of products to clients with yearly contracts. Despite all the negative impacts, the Company generated quite a decent profit. The specialisation of our Company proved an advantage, including the production of aluminium sheets and strips, aluminium foils, flexible packaging aluminium and plastic foils.
Investment projects in 2015 were carried out in accordance with the approved development strategy. In the beginning of the year we put into operation a new annealing furnace for aluminium foils, which will provide a sufficient volume of high-quality foils for the production of flexible aluminium-based packaging; we also completed the modernisation of the smelting and casting line by increasing the casting capacity of each block. We purchased a new printing machine, circular varnishing machine by acquiring substitute printing devices. In September we signed two contracts for a new SEPARATOR and to build a new energy bridge. Both projects will continue also in 2016. In 2015 AL INVEST Břidličná, a.s. invested a total of MCZK 147 in improving the quality of its production and working environment.
In 2016 the Company will continue to develop, especially in the packaging and aluminium foil production segments. The Company’s business strategy will continue focusing on close cooperation with end customers.
Dear shareholders and business partners, let me thank you for your confidence in AL INVEST Břidličná, a.s. I would also like to thank the Company’s employees for their cooperation and for the results that we achieved together in 2015. I strongly believe that we will manage to meet the set goals in 2016.
Ing. Petr Otava
Chairman of the Board of Directors
