Strong position creates solid platform for the future
A well-filled order backlog, good project mix, well-dimensioned development rights portfolio and a strong financial position provide Peab with a good foundation for the future.
Peab is characterized by a decentralized and cost-efficient organization with four cooperating business areas whose operations are based on local entrepreneurship close to customers. Our business model with four business areas creates opportunities throughout the value chain in a construction project.
Four collaborating business areas create added value

Business area Industry delivers, among other things, ballast, concrete, asphalt, temporary electricity and prefabricated concrete elements to external customers and the other business areas in Peab. The business area also provides cranes, machines and transportation as well as handling production waste.
