The grand opening of our aggregate workshop

After a long wait, our facility for production of power packs has been completed and inaugurated. The need to expand the premises has been long overdue and we are very happy to see the finished product. The new facility is provided by Sävsjö municipality, which has completely renovated. The premises offers 1,000 sqm for both office and production. The expansion to the new premises will help us continue to develop towards our goal of being a complete hydraulic supplier.

The inauguration was carried out by Benny, a faithful employee for 21 years, by cutting a hydraulic hose and it was declared that the facility is ready for production. Speeches were held by the management who talked about what this expansion means to us. They also took the opportunity to thank all the employees for the hard work they put down to carry out the move. A big thank was also sent to our owners who decided on the investment and the belief they have in us.

The inauguration was a successful event where we celebrated the expansion together with our employees, Sävsjö’s municipal council, Sävsjö’s business manager and invited guests and suppliers. Altogether, 100 people came to celebrate with us, which we greatly appreciate.

New location for our power pack production is nearing completion

Right now, full activity is taking place at our new factory in Sävsjö and in just a few weeks it’s time for the grand opening. The need for more production space for our power pack production has been long overdue, but it was not until the opportunity of a new location presented itself we could take the step. In connection with our factory in Sävsjö, only meters away, there is a new facility dedicated to the production of power packs.

Being able to move away from the overcrowding we are enduring today to a new facility adapted to our needs is something we are very happy about. During the weeks to come, the big task will be to equip the premises and ensure that the production gets a well thought out and smooth flow throughout the process.

The grand opening will take place during May. We can hardly wait.

Delivery of a new machine in Nastola

Our new Puma 5100XLY horizontal turning center arrived at Nastola factory this week. The delivery is a part of Arcos Hydraulik Oy investment plan where we are increasing our machining capacity and improving productivity.

Investments are ongoing for the entire Arcos Hydraulik group. In Borlänge we have taken delivery of a new Mazak in the previous month. In Sävsjö we are looking forward to the opening of the new factory for power packs. And in Hällaryd delivery and installation of a new Okuma is going on.

Layout change at Arcos Hydraulik Oy Nastola on a roll

As a major part of our investment plan, Arcos Hydraulik Oy, Nastola factory will have a new and improved design. The new layout will be leaner and together with other investments, such as a new multi-tasking turning center (March 2019), more efficient. Soon we are pleased to offer both new and refurbished hydraulic cylinders with more flexibility and shorter lead times.
After hours and hours of brainstorming, drawing and designing of the new plan it is great to see the first steps becoming reality. The new nice and clean floor space has been coated by Kausalan Pinnoite Oy.

Thank you for visiting us at Elmia

Thank you to everyone who visited us at Elmia Subcontractor. We have had 4 enjoyable days at the fair with visits from both old and new acquaintances. We hope we had something to offer that caught your interest. If you have more you would like to discuss please give us a call on +46 (0) 243 820 75.

 

New webpage

Now it is finally here. A brand-new webpage to represent the new Arcos Hydraulik. When the merger with PMC Cylinders in July was a fact, the decision was made on creating a new webpage. After a few months of development, the product is ready.

The main purpose of the webpage is to instantly show the visitor our strengths and our knowledge of hydraulics and why the new Arcos Hydraulik is a stable and reliable partner. By creating an updated version of our previous similar webpages we are able to present a format that former visitors recognize and where they can quickly locate what interests them.

We are very pleased to publish this new webpage and we hope it works as well for you as we meant.

Elmia

On November 13-16, it is time for Elmia Subcontractor in Jönköping and we are on site. This will be, for us, the first fair together as the new Arcos Hydraulik. We hope to meet as many of you as possible there and get the chance to show our new increased strength and how this merger will benefit all parties. You can find us in stand A09: 31. Please stop by.

New Machines

We are constantly undergoing changes and improvements to maximize the productivity and capacity of our factories. An improvement project we are currently executing is investing in our machinery. All plants are covered by the investment program and one week ago, the paper was signed for the latest addition that will be placed in Borlänge.

The latest addition is a Mazak Integrex e-670H. An extensive job of moving machines, laying foundations and making the site ready for installation is awaiting. But we remain hopeful the machine should be in place and ready for operation by the end of the year.

The other investments are:

Okuma MA-400 HA 10 paletter for Sävsjö

CNC Svarv Doosan 5100 XLY for Nastola.
