Rototilt foresees continued success and is expanding its factory in Vindeln by more than 3000m².
“It feels great to be able to do this,” says Tord Johansson, production manager at Rototilt. “We built a completely new factory in 2007, and at the time, we were 42 employees. We now have more than 200 employees and expanding the factory is solid proof that our export initiative has really taken off.The goal is for the expansion to be completed by the end of 2019.”
Rototilt has more than doubled its sales in five years and foresees continued strong growth. Expansion is motivated by demand for machines with smart functions, subsidiary establishment in France, UK & Germany and substantial interest in the Rototilt Tiltrotator on the export markets.
“The decision was based on our scenario forecast,” says CEO Anders Jonsson. “We’re gearing up for continued growth with the focus on Europe and North America, and we expect to reach our capacity ceiling at the current factory within two years. This is why we are making this investment now.”
The expansion will add about 3300 m² to the existing factory in Vindeln. This makes more room for machining tools and alters the flow in the factory.
“We gain even more optimised processes for machining, painting and assembly so that we’re prepared for future production increases,” says Tord Johansson.
