We have a powerful decentralised, value-add model with massive potential for growth. We drive revenue diversification in three buckets: end markets, geographic penetration and product extension. All of our businesses have fantastic organic growth opportunities across these three buckets.
This ensures sustainable growth and allows us to grow organically, build scale and increase resilience. Our organic growth strategy is complemented by bolt-on acquisitions that accelerate organic growth. Building effective scale as we grow is key to our strategy. We develop our businesses to be better, not just bigger, in order to sustain long-term delivery of our model.
