Cavotec Acquires Combibox

Cavotec engineering group has acquired aircraft ground support equipment (GSE) manufacturer Combibox Systems Scandinavia AB, which in 2011 had revenues of around €2 million (US$2.5m).
Cavotec’s CEO Ottonel Popesco commented:  “With more than 30 years of experience in the airports industry, Combibox is extremely well-established; it has an outstanding customer base with product references all around the world.  This will enable the Group to further improve its offering and expand into new markets.”
Combibox has a product range of in-ground systems that supply aircraft with air, fuel, electrical power, and fresh and blue water.  The acquisition adds new and reinforces existing markets for Cavotec across Asia, the Baltics, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and India.
