Carmenta Group announces strategic decision to focus on geospatial technologies and autonomous driving solutions

February 15, 2021

Following a structured review process of strategic options, initiated mid last year, Carmenta agreed to divest its Carmenta Public Safety business activities to CSAM Health Group AS (Norway), a leading provider of niche eHealth solutions in the Nordic region, as of today.

In the light of an accelerating market consolidation in the European public safety sector, the partnering of Carmenta Public Safety with CSAM, as a much larger, focused eHealth solutions group with a strong Nordic presence, will improve its ability to continue to grow as a leading provider of 112/emergency response software solutions.

Carmenta Group will from now on accelerate its growth drive in its original core business, Carmenta Geospatial Technologies, a world-leader in mission-critical situational awareness solutions, serving major defence and security industry customers, and in growing business unit Carmenta Automotive, developing next-level situational awareness products and real-time information services for connected and automated driving solutions.

“Carmenta is a world-leader in geospatial technology, supplying reliable, innovative, high-performance software components and services. With our team of highly skilled professionals, we will further develop our core strengths in geospatial technologies and aim to bolster our position as a given niche player in connected and automated driving solutions, for us a major growth market in future”, says Björn Berndtsson, CEO of Carmenta Group.

“We are convinced that all customers and employees of our former public safety business will find an excellent new strategic business partner and employer in CSAM. We are grateful for the excellent work of CEO Johan Hedensiö and his team and wish them all success in the future”, comments Henrik Scharp, Chairman of Carmenta Group.
