Our location in Eskilstuna was established in 1832 by Theofron Munktell. First a mechanical workshop, the site was later converted into a tractor factory before finally becoming one of the largest machine processing plants in Europe. Additionally, you can find in Eskilstuna a Technical Center, a Customer Center and the famous Muntkell Museum.
Recently, Volvo CE have announced a 16 MSEK of investments at its Eskilstuna site, including an arena for electric and autonomous machine demonstrations for customers, a new R&D test track and an energy recovery system for its components factory.
The plant is specialized in the production of components with transmissions and axels. On top of that, Volvo CE Eskilstuna is also home to functions like Technology, Sales & Marketing, IT and Purchasing, employing in total over 2,100 people.
In the Muntkell Museum 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" (Gravel Charlie), the world's first mass-produced articulated hauler. The unique museum is a popular choice for conferences and dinners, and is a must-see when visiting Eskilstuna.
