Kalmar Acquires Crane Refurbishment Company Mareiport

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has acquired total ownership of Mareiport, a Spanish crane refurbishment and maintenance service company.

Kalmar, a cargo-handling solutions company, has been a minority shareholder, with 30 percent ownership, in the privately owned Mareiport since 2007. Mareiport has been providing maintenance services for ports and terminals and refurbishment and heightening services for a variety of cranes, including quay cranes, rubber-tire gantry cranes, bulk cranes and large shipyard cranes, especially in the Mediterranean region.

“By acquiring full ownership in Mareiport, Kalmar will expand its crane services and refurbishment capabilities especially in southern Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and together with our existing competences in Central Europe, Southeast Asia and (the U.S.) East Coast, we will be able to respond to the growing customer needs globally,” said Olli Isotalo, president of Kalmar, in a written statement.
