Väderstad Components, which manufactures all genuine spare and wearing parts for the company’s agricultural machinery, is expanding the factory site by a further 2,000 m2 to take account of growing demand.
Manufacturing genuine parts has been a major focus for the Vaderstad Group in recent years, and includes a significant financial investment in a new production line. Along with its 50 skilled employees Väderstad Components aims to increase output, operator safety and product quality.
“The investment is very positive for both us as a company and our customers. The addition creates even better conditions for us to increase the production of sustainable wearing parts, while the plant will have a better flow and an even better working environment,” says Väderstad Components managing director Dan Somlin.
Building works will start in autumn 2020 and the new unit is expected to be ready for opening in spring 2021. In the long term, recruitment of new staff will also be considered.
“Together with the new production line that is already in place, this creates exciting development and growth opportunities that will eventually lead to an increased need for skills and recruitment,” says Mr Somlin.
