Axel Johnson International acquires Caldan Conveyor


Axel Johnson International expands within industrial automation through the acquisition of Caldan Conveyor, creating a strong partnership in delivery of overhead and floor conveyor systems.

The acquisition of Caldan is well aligned with Axel Johnson International’s long-term strategy to provide complete technical solutions for a variety of industrial customers. Caldan will become an integral part of Axel Johnson International’s recently formed industrial automation segment and part of the business group Industrial Solutions.

The transaction is subject to clearance by relevant, local competition authorities. Oaklins was engaged by Axel Johnson International as strategic and buy-side M&A advisor.

The Oaklins team was highly dedicated and has long experience in providing buy-side advice. We couldn’t be happier with the guidance and support that they provided throughout the process. HANS GLEMSTEDT, HEAD OF STRATEGY AND M&A – AXEL JOHNSON INTERNATIONAL
