Concentric AB: Customer warranty claim from a manufacturing defect

REDDITCH, England, May 20, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Concentric AB has detected a manufacturing defect in a specific water pump. It is not possible to definitively determine the financial impact at this stage, however, the net cost could be material. After a preliminary assessment, the net cost is estimated to be in the range of MSEK 60 to 100.

After receiving a warranty claim, it was discovered that a number of water pumps were fitted with a defective seal supplied to Concentric. The water pumps produced with the defective seal have full functionality upon delivery, but in certain instances, the defect manifests over time, potentially shortening the water pump's life. The manufacturing defect does not pose a product safety issue.

Concentric has taken immediate action to ensure that all water pumps are now built with the proper seal. Concentric continues to work collaboratively with the customer, establishing remediation plans to rectify the issue and analysing technical product data to establish a more defined failure rate. Concentric expects to have more clarity on this issue towards the end of 2024 and will make provisions for the expected costs in such time that it would impact the operating result of the second quarter of 2024. Due to the uncertainty related to the estimated failure rate, the actual costs may be materially higher or lower than the estimated costs. Based on the information we have to date, we plan to provide MSEK 100 in our Q2 results.
