Husqvarna to Invest U.S. $159 Million in Chainsaw Production Facility

http://rermag.com/supply-side/husqvarna-invest-us-159-million-chainsaw-production-facility

Husqvarna Group this week said it will invest in a new production facility for manufacturing of chainsaw chains in Huskvarna, Sweden, where the Group already manufactures professional chainsaws, brush cutters and trimmers. The Group will also invest in expanded capacity for manufacturing of cylinders for two-stroke engines for chainsaws in its facilities in Nashville, Tenn., and in Huskvarna, Sweden.

If you read closely the announcement HVA released it appears that:

Husqvarna will insource the manufacture of cylinders, does not say anything about pistons,
Husqvarna will begin making saw chains itself instead of purchasing Husqvarna branded products from other manufacturers,
Lastly it also states the investment will also enable us to grow our offering in the replacement part market.

Well, they do have a bar factory as well, but that is another and much older story (and another location, in Norway). The Techlite bars are made there, and many of their regular laminated bars.

A lot of their bars are rebranded Oregons though, a some have been GB in the past. We don't know if they are going to make all their chain at the chain factory - time will tell.....

Back in my motocross days, Husqvarna were the absolute masters of pressure cast non-ferrous metal manufacture. HVA made the most beautiful complex engine components around. I, for one am hoping that they revive and enhance their dominance in this area!
