Our location in Eskilstuna was founded in 1832 by Johan Theofron Munktell, a Swedish industrialist. First a mechanical workshop, the site was later converted into a tractor factory before becoming what it is today: one of the largest machine processing plants in Europe. The Customer Center in Eskilstuna offers both a large machine demonstration area and modern conference facilities.

In this beautiful old brick building, visitors can experience more than 180 years of Swedish industrial history. Among the many rarities on display are the first Swedish tractor (built in 1913), the first Volvo CE wheel loader and "Grus-Kalle" (Charlie Gravel), the world's first mass-produced articulated hauler. The unique museum is a popular choice for conferences and dinners, and it is a must-see when visiting Eskilstuna.
