Ramudden is a leading specialist provider of work zone safety services (primarily road safety) in the Nordic region, operating through a network of more than 60 depots. The company, which was founded in 2005, is a leading player in the Swedish market and is also present in Norway (since 2009) and Finland (since 2012), with headquarters in Gävle and Sundsvall, Sweden.

Ramudden’s products and services include the rental of essential temporary traffic control equipment (such as traffic barriers and guide signs), traffic arrangement plans, education programmes, and surveillance and maintenance services. Key customers include civil engineering contractors and construction companies.

Ramudden was acquired from the founder by the IK VII Fund in June 2014, and exited to Triton in December 2017.
