Letter from the CEO
Dear customers, business partners, employees and shareholders,
“Barco is now a different company with a healthier, more resilient platform for future growth.”
2019 was a year of robust growth for every Barco division. After three years of intensive focus on performance and on shaping our organization and capabilities, Barco had become a different company, in 2019, with a healthier, more resilient platform for future growth.
The highlights of 2019? There were many. We introduced an impressive series of innovations, our ‘China for China’ strategy led to solid growth in China, our incubation initiatives shifted into a higher gear and we strengthened our capabilities in many areas – not in the least in the area of software and services. Moreover, we made great progress in the field of sustainability.
We are now ready to expand our horizons in the coming years. In 2020 and beyond, we will capture new opportunities and further expand our solutions portfolio, step up innovation and incubation initiatives, strengthen our capabilities and skills, expand our market footprint and extend our sustainability efforts – in order to keep leading in our markets. Without, of course, losing our continuous focus on improving our operational performance, efficiency and resilience.
I am looking forward to expanding the success of Barco in the coming years, together with every one of our customers, business partners, employees and shareholders.
