Väderstad to expand production capacity

Väderstad will expand its production facility in Väderstad, Sweden with another 12,600 square meters. The expansion provides additional surfaces for assembly and painting, with the aim of a production capacity of 10,000 tillage and seeding machines annually by 2028.

Väderstad has seen a strong increase in demand for its products during the last years. The turnover has gone from EUR 237 million in financial year 2017 to EUR 550 million in 2022. In 2021 Väderstad announced the building of a new factory center, an investment of SEK 125 million (over EUR 11 million), which will be ready for use later this year.

The factory center will now be complemented by an expansion of the current production area.

“The continued expansion of our factory in Väderstad is in line with our growth targets, and will benefit both our customers, our dealers and help create more job opportunities, as well as create a more efficient flow in our production”, says Henrik Gilstring, CEO of Väderstad Group.

The production facility in Väderstad currently produces machines for all global sales regions, except North America, where production is located in the facilities in Langbank, Canada, and Wahpeton, USA.

Two blocks that will be added and connected to the existing factory in Väderstad,  are have a surface of 6300 m2 and will create a total production area of approx. 70 000 m2. Besides from creating additional surfaces for assembly and painting, they will also help create a better and more efficient flow through the factory.

“Aside from a general increase in demand, we have also launched several new products the last couple of years. Inspire goes into full production this spring, our Proceed concept is in full testing and we continue to see a very large demand for our Tempo planters. This expansion will help us face the future demand for all these products”, says Mikael Peiponen, Senior Vice President of Order to Delivery at Väderstad.

Construction will start this coming April 1st and the new buildings are planned to be in full use by autumn 2024.
