Strategy & objectives

We provide complete end-to-end electronics solutions to our global OEM customers through our complementary technologies – Wireless Solutions (M2M), Power Products and HMI, supported by Electronics Assembly.

Delivering on our strategy

Our strategy is to build the business through a compelling design-led integrated technology offering that leverages our existing capability and new regional design centres, complemented where appropriate by acquisitions to enhance technology leadership and global reach.

Our five strategic elements are:

1. Market share and profitable sales growth

We drive growth by focusing on our core markets, adding value and providing a fully integrated one-stop design and manufacturing solution for our customers with proven capability in wireless solutions, power supplies and human machine interface (HMI) solutions.

We are committed to investing in our Technology Products division, ensuring products we bring to market are relevant, technologically advanced and in high growth markets. We will make bolt-on acquisitions to add complementary technologies and increase our exposure to high growth markets and new geographies.

Our priorities

  • Continue to align resources and capital towards the Technology Products division focusing on the high growth markets such as wireless M2M connectivity.
  • Continue to pursue bolt-on acquisitions that augment the growth strategy.

2. Customer satisfaction and operational excellence

We constantly improve our manufacturing operations and procurement activities to maintain competitiveness, deliver value to our customers and improve profitability. We measure our success by the progressive improvement in normalised operating profit margin.

Our priorities

  • Optimise our operational footprint, streamline our business process, drive for continuous improvement and develop smarter ways of working.

3. Developing our technology roadmap

We continue to upgrade the technical and engineering capability and capacity across the Group to support the growth strategy of our Technology Products division. We are committed to driving innovation and technological developments through the Group Technology Board (GTB), investment in capitalised R&D and the opening of dedicated regional design centres (RDCs).
