Rottne Industri AB is entering its 65th year as one of the world’s leading forestry machinery manufacturers. Never before in the history of the company have so many forestry machines been delivered as in 2019. And the stage is now set for continued growth.

All signs are positive for Swedish Rottne. The blue forwarders and harvesters are growing in popularity and the company’s position as one of the four major players in the industry’s global market has been strengthened.

“We’ve succeeded with our strategy of focusing on what we do best,” says Tobias Johansson, CEO for Rottne Industri AB. “Quality, innovations, serviceability and operator comfort have become synonymous with Rottne.”

“Instead of just playing it safe, we’ve chosen an aggressive approach, and this has produced results – in three year’s time, we’ve grown by 50 per cent.”

After record sales in 2019, Rottne Industri AB is now setting its sights on new technological advances.

“We’re well-prepared to continue development and have targeted growth of another 50 per cent over the next five years,” says Johansson.

“We will continue to strengthen our position as a global forestry machinery manufacturer and naturally without compromising on quality or losing focus on our customers.”

With its 65 years in the business, Rottne Industri AB is one of the branch’s oldest companies. When founder Börje Karlsson built the first crane from a couple of plough components, a piece of timber, an electric winch, a length of cable and a pair of timber tongs, he laid the foundation for something big.

“One of the main reasons for our successes over the years, is that everything we’ve done has been marked by solid quality,” says Johansson. “It’s what characterizes Rottne Industri.”

“Experience in combination with outstanding personnel and extensive knowledge of all aspects of the industry is what has brought us to where we are today and we’re extremely proud of this.”

“Instead of just playing it safe, we’ve chosen an aggressive approach, and this has produced results – in three year’s time, we’ve grown by 50 per cent,” says Johansson.

 

Fantastic co-workers with great knowledge are an important success factor for Rottne.
