We never give up. Do you?
At Väderstad we innovate with a purpose. To simplify work and improve the results for farmers all over the world. Väderstad started with an everyday challenge for a farming couple on their family farm. A challenge that was met with a new way of thinking, a vision of durability, better quality and improved results. Through the years Väderstad has gone from a family farm to a global company but the foundation remains the same. We continue to challenge old truths and during this journey we have taken some major steps with ground-breaking innovations that has changed agriculture forever. Right now, our role is more important than ever. But we need more people. People that never give up.
Tempo – the world record holder
In 2012 Väderstad launched Tempo, a new generation of planters that provide unmatched precision at double the speed compared to a conventional seed drill. By singulating each seed before shooting them into the soil with pressurised air, Tempo gives farmers millimeter precision both in seeding depth and space between each seed. In 2017 Tempo set a new world record by planting 502 hectares of corn in 24 hours. A record that still stands today.
SeedEye a technological leap for increased precision
Väderstad’s awarded SeedEye system gives the farmer full control of the seeding. Sensors count every seed that passes through each seed tube, which means that the farmer in a very easy way can control how many seeds end up in each square meter of a field. SeedEye also monitors if a seed tube is blocked, giving an instant alert to the tractor driver.
CrossCutter Disc opened a new segment
When introduced in 2017, our CrossCutter Disc created a new segment called ultra-shallow tillage. With its unique shape, the CrossCutter Disc easily cuts through crop residues while maintaining a working depth of only 2-3 centimeters. This way of shallow cultivation gives great agronomic benefits to the farm, conserves valuable ground moisture in the soil - while reducing the fuel used by the tractor.
we are curious
and forward thinking.
One team. All over the world.
We started as a small family business in Väderstad, Sweden. Today we are present all over the world, but the familiar and down to earth spirit is still the heart and soul in everything we do. With different strengths and perspectives, we work together in a safe and welcoming team where we value the importance of close and long-term relations. We have our own way of doing things. We call it The Väderstad Way.
Väderstad is a family business
where relations and care about
each other are central parts
of our culture.
Where are we in the world?
Väderstad is family-owned and our headquarter remains where everything started in Väderstad, Sweden. Today we are operative in 40 countries all over the world with 16 fully owned subsidiaries. In total we have four production sites: two in Sweden, one in Väderstad and one in Överum, and two in North America, one in Langbank, Canada and one in North Dakota, USA.
At Väderstad we build it to last
We work for a long-term sustainability in everything we do. That includes choices of materials in our products and caring about the soil – and how we truly care for each other and our customers. Our founder Rune Stark was meticulous that everything we do should last over time. That’s why we develop new methods for improved soil health and invest in the health and security for our employees. But this is only the beginning.
Our purpose is to make global food production efficient and sustainable
Our improvement culture
We never take short cuts on quality and work systematically with continuous improvements – something that shines through in both our company culture and our products. We have a forward thinking, a curiosity and a will to stay at the forefront of development. All our products go through unique tests in our high-tech laboratories and in field. We do everything we can to make sure to optimise the lifespan of our products and their results in field.
Our committed employees
We want our employees to feel motivated, safe, and proud. That is why we work with an encouraging culture, where everyone can develop their competence and grow with Väderstad. Maybe that is why we have been appointed “Employer of choice” – at Väderstad the passion of our employees leads to both innovation and commitment.
Our products matter
Our products contribute to something bigger. The population of the world keeps growing at the same time as the arable land keeps decreasing. Our highly effective machines and methods contribute to a sustainable agriculture and a sustainable food production. In short, we help put food on the table for millions of people all over the world - and that is something we are immensely proud of.
Our strong growth
We are on a growth journey and invest for a long-term sustainability through efforts that ensure a first-class production and products – both for ourselves, our farmers and for future generations. At Väderstad we develop our business by developing people. Our employees do all the hard work and take both small and larger steps that create change.
We grow together
Just like our machines maximise the potential of each individual seed, we work to ensure that all our 2 000 employees can utilise their full potential. We develop our business by developing people and to us an inspiring and meaningful time at work is just as important as the life outside of work. That is why we encourage a sustainable working life where we take responsibility for everyone’s health and safety – and every employee takes responsibility for their own development and to be a part of the solution.
A down to earth team
The health and safety of our employees is our highest priority. The family and team spirit holds us together. The togetherness is central at Väderstad just as work life balance.
