Stockholm, 10 June, 2008 --

As part of its strategic focus on vertical access within the Construction and Industrial area, Alimak Hek has divested the Raise Climber business and related assets in the subsidiary Alimak AB to the Toronto based Arkbro Industries.

The divestment does not involve any transfer of the brand ALIMAK or employees and is not expected to lead to any significant changes of the Alimak Hek manufacturing unit located in Skellefteå
