At UniCarriers Manufacturing Sweden's facility in Mölnlycke, just outside of Gothenburg on Sweden's west coast, we develop and manufacture our range of electric warehouse trucks. The factory was built in 1972, after the company grew out of much smaller facilities in the Kållered area, a few kilometres further south. Since then, the factory and adjoining office have been built out even further to allow for increased capacity. In more recent years, major investments have been made at the Swedish factory, mainly on the production line and with automatic welding robots.
Our production is driven by customer orders. This means that no trucks sit on stock — instead, each truck is built according to the customer's unique requirements. This means that lead times and delivery reliability are very important parameters for us.
We try to work with nearby suppliers as much as possible. Around 50% of our supplier network is here in Sweden, with the other 50% mostly elsewhere in Europe — all of this makes short delivery times and high-quality machines possible.
UniCarriers' (then Atlet) first real production facility was at a mechanical workshop in Kode, 35km north of Gothenburg.
The company outgrew the small workshop in Kode and moved into a larger facility in Kållered, around 40km away.
The Kållered facility became too small, and the company moved to a purpose-built factory in Mölnlycke, where we are today.
For almost 15 years we have been making changes and investments to allow us to keep production in Sweden, and even to bring home production of parts once manufactured by suppliers around Europe. Today, we're working further to strengthen our Swedish production, and to show that it's possible to manufacture competitively in Sweden.
Cooperation with universities such as Gothenburg's Chalmers University of Technology and other institutions form an important part of this work.
