Cargotec reorganises businesses
Helsinki, Finland-headquartered cargo handling solutions and services company Cargotec has announced a reorganisation of its businesses.
As of April 1, 2019, the company will comprise three strategic business units: Kalmar Mobile Solutions; Kalmar Automation Solutions; and Navis.
Cargotec says its financial reporting structure based on the Kalmar, Hiab and MacGregor business will remain unchanged.
The company has also announced Stefan Lampa as president of Kalmar Mobile Solutions and as a member of the Cargotec Executive Board. Antti Kaunonen, currently president of Kalmar, has been appointed president of Kalmar Automation Solutions. There are no changes in Hiab and MacGregor.
Mika Vehviläinen, CEO, Cargotec, said, “The changes announced today form an important step in our ambition to transform Cargotec from a good to a great company. The new Kalmar organisation will help us focus on the growth opportunities in port automation business as well as drive profitable growth and customer centricity through solution sales and world class supply chain in Kalmar Mobile Solutions.
“Our structure supports our strategy, and the new organisation will further enhance our strategy execution. I want to thank Antti Kaunonen for his excellent work in Kalmar so far and wish both him and Stefan the best of luck in their new roles.”
