Product development

Ahlstrom’s business is characterized by a large, decentralized customer base with specific needs. On Group level, 20 biggest customers generate approximately a quarter of the net sales. In order to be able to competitively serve a customer base like this, it is vital that Ahlstrom is able to offer highly tailored solutions. None of Ahlstrom’s products are off-the-shelf, but are made according to stringent customer specifications.  

Ahlstrom works in close cooperation with its customers in product and technology development in order to ensure an optimal time-to-market. Ahlstom’s innovation and R&D activity focuses on customer-driven innovations and product improvements.  In 2013, 13% of net sales were generated by new products
