Hammarviken’s subsidiary Stavdal merges with Ramirent

Hammarviken Företagsutveckling AB acquired Stavdal AB in 2004 together with the company’s management and has successfully run the company since then. Stavdal AB’s merger with Ramirent Plc forms a leading player in the Swedish rental market and creates great opportunities for all parties.

Hammarviken’s owner and chairman Mats Rydhede has been involved in running Stavdal right from the start. The company is one of Sweden’s largest building-related rental companies. Stavdal’s team, which today amounts to 280 people, merges with Ramirent’s 800 employees in Sweden and will together be able to expand the two operations. The companies share values, something that Hammarviken sees as a fundamental factor for succeeding together.

For the fourth year in a row, Hammarviken ranks at the top of Veckans Affärer business magazine’s list of Sweden’s leading companies (“Sveriges Superföretag”). Click here to read more.
