Cargotec reorganises Kalmar

To enhance Kalmar’s growth opportunities, Cargotec is reorganising it into three strategic business units (SBU); Kalmar Mobile Solutions, Kalmar Automation Solutions and Navis as of April 1, 2019. Cargotec’s financial reporting structure based on three business areas Kalmar, Hiab and MacGregor, will remain unchanged.

 

Stefan Lampa (pictured above) has been appointed President of Kalmar Mobile Solutions and a member of the Cargotec Executive Board. Antti Kaunonen, currently President of Kalmar, has been appointed President of Kalmar Automation Solutions. He will continue as a member of the Executive Board. Benoit de la Tour will continue in his current role as President of Navis. Stefan Lampa, Antti Kaunonen and Benoit de la Tour will report to Cargotec’s CEO Mika Vehviläinen. There are no changes in Hiab and MacGregor.

 

Stefan Lampa joins Cargotec from KUKA Robotics where he has worked as CEO of KUKA Roboter. Lampa brings experience from the world of software systems and robotics and has a proven track record of driving business transformation towards a solution provider across different markets.

 

As of 1 April 2019, Cargotec’s Executive Board consists of

  • Mika Vehviläinen, CEO
  • Mikko Puolakka, Executive Vice President, CFO
  • Mikko Pelkonen, Senior Vice President, Human Resources
  • Mikael Laine, Senior Vice President, Strategy
  • Soili Mäkinen, CIO
  • Stefan Lampa, President, Kalmar Mobile Solutions
  • Antti Kaunonen, President, Kalmar Automation Solutions
  • Scott Phillips, President, Hiab
  • Michel van Roozendaal, President, MacGregor.

Mika Vehviläinen, CEO, Cargotec, said: "The changes announced today form an important step in our ambition to transform Cargotec from a good to a great company. The new Kalmar organisation will help us focus on the growth opportunities in port automation business as well as drive profitable growth and customer centricity through solution sales and world class supply chain in Kalmar Mobile Solutions.

 

"Our structure supports our strategy, and the new organisation will further enhance our strategy execution. I want to thank Antti Kaunonen for his excellent work in Kalmar so far and wish both him and Stefan the best of luck in their new roles."

 

Kalmar Mobile Solutions comprises terminal tractors and all counterbalanced trucks. Kalmar Automation Solutions includes all other equipment even when it is not automated. Most non-automated Kalmar deliveries are fitted with semi-automated features in any event.

 

  • Cargotec has reported a huge order for Kalmar hybrid straddle carriers, from DP World. A total of 63 hybrid straddle carriers will be supplied to four European container terminals: 12 units will be delivered to GMP in Le Havre; 20 units to Eurofos in Marseilles; 19 units to Antwerp Gateway; and 12 units to DP World Southampton. The order was booked in Cargotec’s Q1 2019 order intake, and the majority of the machines is expected to be delivered by the end of 2019.
