Cargotec as an investment

Why invest in Cargotec

In April 2023 Cargotec's Board of Directors decided to investigate and initiate a process to potentially separate its core businesses Kalmar and Hiab into two standalone companies. Cargotec’s intention would be to separate Kalmar as a new listed company by means of a partial demerger from Cargotec. In February 2024, Cargotec's Board approved a demerger plan concerning the separation of Kalmar into a new listed company. More information.
