Cavotec

International engineering group

Cavotec is an international engineering group that designs and manufactures systems within power transmission and distribution, remote controlling and automation for end markets such as ports, maritime, airports, mining and tunnelling. Its Ports & Maritime segment provides systems such as automated mooring, motorised cable reels, shore power connection systems. The Airports & Industry segment offers ground-support equipment (GSE) for aircraft at airports such as power and pre-conditioned air (PCA), while also providing motorised cable reels and radio remote controls (RRC) for mining and general industry.

Cavotec’s product offering enables substantial efficiency improvements in terms of both cost and environmental savings, such as the automated mooring system that greatly reduces mooring time and space for ships in ports. Its ground-support equipment for aircraft greatly reduces the need for fossil-fuel-generated operations by the aircraft themselves. Should sales efforts and penetration of Cavotec’s end markets prove successful, above-market growth is likely. Cavotec is undergoing a large internal transformation project, which, if successful, will significantly improve the company’s profitability and growth prospects.

Cavotec has a history of declining sales, high fixed costs and poor acquisitions. A positive future for Cavotec is heavily reliant on the success of the current transformational turnaround initiatives. While there are concrete arguments for using Cavotec’s products and solutions, it is always difficult for a smaller firm to penetrate large end markets where investments are large and decision-making often takes a long time.
