Fairford´s view of Translink industry

Looking at the Translink industry we see a playing field of Davids and Goliaths where supplier and end markets are characterised by large consolidated players exercising their relative power upon the value chain as a whole. Translink has during the years consolidated several minor players to try to level out the balance with some success and there is a continued opportunity to further consolidate the market. The uncertainty which has characterised the market during recent years while awaiting upcoming legislation is becoming less of an impact and actors in the industry have started to invest again. We expect strong years for Translink going forward backed by industry and forest activity as well as infrastructure initiatives.
