Within the framework of Engcon’s ongoing growth across the globe, the world-leading tiltrotator manufacturer has announced that it is investing a total of SEK 90 million (over £7.5m) to triple production capabilities.
This major investment programme is part of Engcon’s commitment to accelerate the global development of the tiltrotator market and meet strong demand for Engcon’s products and systems.
The investment will include new state-of-the-art CNC machines installed at Engcon’s production facilities in Sweden over the next three years, allowing Engcon to triple their annual production to 22,000 tiltrotators per year.
The new machines will initially be used to process the cast heart of the company’s tiltrotators. Previously, Engcon has made use of CNC facilities through a select group of suppliers across different locations. The management of this new computerised and fully automated production facility will be handled by Strömsunds Kvalitetslego, who are embedded in Engcon’s production complex.
“This is a major investment for us, both in terms of our own capacity, but also in the potential that we see in the market. Our calculations indicate these new machines and systems will triple our production capacity, while focusing on our systems in Strömsund means we will be better able to control and maximise potential across the entire production chain, giving us additional advantages compared to competitors,” says Krister Blomgren, CEO of Engcon Group.
The factory was inaugurated on the 19th of March.
