[EN] Caladrius Holding AB acquires O. Bodins Maskin AB

Caladrius Holding AB, owner of Hagabergs Mekaniska AB has today, April 29, 2019, acquired all shares in O. Bodins Maskin AB.

Both companies operate in the same market sector complementing each other in a positive manner. Bodins specializes in the small series manufacturing and rebuilding of forklifts with Hagabergs focusing on the larger series. With the acquisition customers are offered a much wider and comprehensive range of products and services. Production capacity will increase and is more flexible as a direct result.

Both activities remain focused on the Nordic markets, however, with the acquisition the foundation has been created for greater expansion in the Nordic region and across Europe. Bodins and Hagabergs will continue to be independent companies and will focus on developing their respective products and services in close cooperation with customers and users.

Bodins, CEO Linda Svensson and Hagabergs, CEO Magnus Larsson remain in their respective roles. The Chairman of both companies is Michael Mononen.

“I see this as a fantastic opportunity to meet the challenges of the future with greater
strength and broader knowledge,” says Linda Svensson.

"Gathering as much experience and competence within the same family provides us with even better conditions to be able to exceed our customers' expectations," says Magnus Larsson.

“We are extremely pleased with the acquisition of Bodins. The deal is a step in our ambition to build a group of companies specialized on product solutions and services within the area of material handling”, comments Michael Mononen.
