According to the Swedish company, the acquisition will expand its tanker offering to create a product portfolio for cargo tanks that is more comprehensive.

Scanjet’s well-known and market-leading solutions for cargo tanks complement our existing Framo cargo pumping solutions for cargo handling. This gives us the ability to optimize tank management for our customers with an ambition to reduce their water and fuel consumption and ultimately their CO2 footprint.”

The deal is expected to close during the third quarter of this year.
