Svensk Presshärdning AB changes name to Väderstad Components AB and the business grows

Väderstads fully-owned subsidiary Svensk Presshärdning AB has changed its name to Väderstad Components AB. The company, which is the leading manufacturer of discs, tines and packer rings for farm machinery, has a strong belief in the future and now employs over 50 employees.

Väderstad Components manufactures discs, tines and packer rings for all Väderstad machines in a completely automated process with high-tech and highly advanced robotics. To have our own production of wear parts is unique in the farming industry and this gives Väderstad full control of the quality.

Approximately 40 million SEK is now invested in a new state-of-the-art manufacturing line for machining and hardening of wear parts for Väderstad machines. This gives an extended machine capacity and reliability. The investment ensures that Väderstad can meet an increased demand for the company's products.

- The name change from Svensk Presshärdning AB, to Väderstad Components AB is well connected with the naming strategy for companies within the Väderstad Group. We are a company with a strong belief in the future and with an increasing turnover. The expansion of recent years has resulted in several new employees. We have now passed 50 employees and see a continued need for skilled employees, says Dan Somlin, Managing Director and site manager for Väderstad Components AB.

In addition to investments in the production, also the office space, conference rooms and lunch room have been decorated according to Väderstad’s vision and values. Väderstad Components has in the interior design taken on the brand's cornerstones "Swedish Quality" and "Partnership" along with being leading, innovative, reliable and accessible.

- This strengthen the position in the market and is a way to create the best conditions for our employees to work in accordance with the company's strong values. We are continuously evolving and driving development forward within our sector, while our specialized personnel are at the forefront of cutting-edge technical expertise. Now we have created space for more employees which we will need to be able to reach the global growth Väderstad is aiming for, says Dan Somlin.
