The review has concluded that the business should focus on Russia, and close its activities in Ukraine. Fortrent’s total sales amounted to EUR 31.8 million, with the Ukraine contributing €2.1 million in revenues.

Cramo and Ramirent added that Fortrent’s focus would also be on optimising cash flow generation and debt repayment to its owners.
