Väderstad’s spare parts facility at Överum is to be expanded to meet the demand for spares from the company’s customers.

Väderstad Components, which manufactures all genuine spare and wearing parts for the company’s agricultural machinery, is expanding its factory at Överum, Sweden, by a further 2,000 square metres to take account of growing demand.

Manufacturing genuine parts has been a major focus for the Väderstad 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,” Väderstad Components’ managing director, Dan Somlin, said. “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.”

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’s already in place, this creates exciting development and growth opportunities that will eventually lead to an increased need for skills and recruitment,” Mr Somlin added.
