ÅF focuses firmly on improving profitability for its clients. Experience from previous projects provides secure and stable solutions, and enables ÅF to use its know-how to benefit clients quickly and efficiently – which further is enhanced by our local presence.
ÅF’s strategy within the Industry-sectors is to combine local service with process and industrial plant know-how jointly with the technical resources and experience of the entire ÅF from similar constructions in order to help the customers to develop their industry. This creates a flexible working environment and an opportunity to accompany clients who are committed to international expansion.
For our customers it's essential to have guaranteed access to reliable resources and skills, and for this reason relations increasingly take the form of partnership. An increasing number of customers expect their partner to assume greater degree of responsibility in projects, which is entirely in line with ÅF's strategy. Another important part is that we also take environmental responsibility in order to help our customers to have less environmental impact and to live up to the market's environmental expectations, and yet obtain financial savings. Our strategy also involves making the environmental issue an obvious factor in all our projects.
ÅF is the Northern Europe's leading industrial consultant and the largest independent consultant. We offer a portfolio of services for all types of industrial production companies that covers the entire chain from initial idea through feasibility studies, process analyses, calculation and project engineering to the construction, programming and commissioning of plant. The ÅF consultants can work either as an integral part of the client's own organization, or assume total responsibility for the delivery of an entire project or a specific function.
ÅF is active in all sectors of industry, but enjoys a particularly strong standing in Nuclear Power, Energy, Pulp & Paper, Food Processing, Pharmaceuticals, Mining and other Process Industries. This breadth leaves ÅF relatively insensitive to ups and downs in the business cycle; by nature the projects tend to be worthwhile regardless of the state of the economy.
