1991 – Åkerman

In 1889, Lars Åkerman set up the Åkermans Gjuteri och Mekaniska Verkstad. The following years, Åkermans manufactured products such as road rollers, roller graders and – above all – hydraulic excavators.
VME wanted to further broaden its product range and enter the area of compact equipment. 1991, more than a century after the foundation, Åkermans became part of the VME Group.
