Engcon gets a new factory to meet growing demand
10 May 2017
Engcon, world leader in tiltrotators for excavators, recently opened another factory in Strömsund, Sweden the company's capital. Underpining investment in the new factory is the need to meet increasing demand for Engcon's products as well as a drive to reduce delivery times.
“We've enjoyed fantastic sales in recent years, so we're expanding our production and delivery capacity accordingly," said Stig Engström, Engcon's founder, during his inaugural speech at the new factory.
Stig Engström praised his staff for maintaining delivery times in the face of record sales. He also said that the additional capacity provided by the new factory would allow the company to meet continued growth.
Anders Jonsson, Head of Assembly at Engcon’s factories in Strömsund, commented: “The new factory means we can be one step ahead before customers even place their orders. We will be able to offer even shorter delivery times, especially for larger volumes of our standard products”.
New jobs – for today and the future
The new plant and recent sales growth have resulted in the recruitment of additional staff and will probably mean further new jobs in the future.
Concluding his speach, Stig Engström said “Our growth rate speaks for itself; the increase in production space and staff won’t stop here!".
