A coherent strategy for a changing operating environment

Through its strategy, Atria strives to secure and improve profitability, boost growth and increase the company’s value. 

The Healthy Growth Strategy highlights profitable operations and organic growth. In addition to organic growth, Atria will analyse opportunities for acquisitions.

The Healthy Growth Strategy continues and deepens the two key objectives of the previous strategy period: improving profitability and strengthening the balance sheet. As a financially strong and profitable company, Atria is able to grow, innovate and respond to rapid changes in the operating environment in all its business areas.

Atria manages its strategy of Healthy Growth through three main themes shared by all of its business areas. Each business area (segment) deploys the themes by implementing initiatives, projects and measures in line with seven focal points. The segments are Atria Finland, Atria Sweden, Atria Denmark & Estonia and Atria Russia.
