Major investment in new tailor-made facility in Karlstad

With strong organic growth and carefully selected acquisitions, Malte Månson is now Scandinavia's largest independent truck workshop chain.

"And we continue to expand," explains Staffan Lindewald, CEO of Malte Månson Holding.

"The next step will be to build a brand new and modern facility in Karlstad, optimally adapted to provide the best possible service to our customers and an attractive working environment for our employees."

The demand for high-quality service and good accessibility for heavy traffic in Värmland is high. Along the E18, traffic is dense. Karlstad is strategically located, midway between Oslo and Stockholm.

Malte Månson's long-awaited new facility will be ready by the New Year.

"It will be a big boost for us here in Karlstad," says workshop manager Fredrik Karlsson.

"We get the best possible location next to the motorway at the Bråtebäcken industrial estate, with just one exit and a short turn and the driver is on our premises".

Modern and attractive working environment

The pressure on service and repairs for heavy traffic in Karlstad is so great that Malte Månson has sometimes felt that they may not have been able to accommodate all customers in the best possible way.

"But with larger and more modern spaces, we will be able to meet the steadily growing demand," continues Fredrik Karlsson.

  • "We will be able to offer a lounge for customers where they can rest in a relaxing environment while we take care of their vehicles."

"There will be toilet and shower facilities as well as an outside toilet for our overnight customers".

Additional benefits of the new facility include a major leap forward in both sustainability and the working environment.

"With wooden beams in the interior - as an alternative to steel or concrete beams - we achieve both a quieter and warmer workshop environment and an energy-efficient indoor climate will be appreciated by both our customers and employees," explains Staffan Lindewald.

"Importantly, a modern and attractive working environment makes us a much more attractive employer for skilled mechanics. At the rate we are expanding, we really need new competent employees," concludes Fredrik Karlsson.

Malte Månson rents the new premises for 12 years and also has an option to rent an adjacent space.
