“A Nordic consolidation is something our industry has been expecting. The new set-up will allow Havator to leverage an even stronger and broader service offering to its clients and also offer more uniform services to clients operating on a Nordic scale. Joining a pan-Nordic company will also offer our personnel an even more international outlook towards the future, combined with growing opportunities to develop competencies and careers. I am also pleased that our new owner is a true industrial player,” says Hannu Leinonen, CEO of Havator.

“I want to thank the leadership and personnel at Havator for the excellent cooperation throughout the years. I am glad the company’s new owners provide such an excellent strategic fit and believe them to enable exciting growth opportunities,” says Anders Björkell, Partner at CapMan Buyout.

“We have always looked at Havator as a great and highly respected crane colleague in the Nordics. We have for quite some years followed Havator closely, so we are very happy that the time was now right to join forces. Havator is – as Stangeland and BMS – a mature company with aligned values and a very loyal and competent workforce. We are therefore looking forward to welcoming the Havator-employees to our crane-family,” says Jens Enggaard, CEO of BMS.
