I am delighted to announce the launch of the Sarens 2015 Annual Report. Aside from the standard Financial Report and information on corporate structure that you can find in it, I strongly encourage you to take a moment to enjoy this year´s edition as it contains truly interesting stories on our identity, our accomplishments, and our vision. I would also like to seize this opportunity to highlight that 2015 constituted a particularly proud year for Sarens as it reached its 60 years of leading presence in the market. In the Annual Report, you can enjoy a short feature on this key moment in our Group´s history.
2015 was indeed a challenging year for Sarens with many of our key markets experiencing a slowdown due to postponements in investment decisions, primarily in oil & gas and metals & minerals projects. Despite it all, our commitment to asset re-allocation and decentralized decision making has enabled us to adapt and capitalize on diverse market trends. Our mission is to be the global leader and market reference in crane rental services, heavy lifting, and engineered transport worldwide. We are set to hold our leading position in the market and certainly grow in the years to come as it has thus far been the case for us.
Of course, none of our work and positioning in the market would be possible without the dedication of our people across the world. It would be an omission not to mention their professionalism and their steadfastness in delivering our projects with the highest standards. I would like to end by extending my heartfelt thanks to each and every one of them, for making Sarens, along with our cutting edge equipment, the very special Group it is today.
