Waldemar Hultdin founded Hultdins in 1928. He started his career as a carpenter in the village of Aspliden in the north of Sweden. He was initially manufacturing furniture to the families in the village, but changed strategy of his company when all the families in the village were supplied with furniture. He then started a workshop that produced wagons, sleds, and tools for the forestry industry. The company expanded after a couple of years when Waldemar sons Gustav and Ove also started to work for the company.
Hultdins expanded in 1956 and hired a new employee, Haldo Hultdin. The company had then started to produce forestry equipment for agriculture tractors. The tractors were equipped with a crane, grapple, and tracks.
By 1963 the company had grown to 30 employees and had a turnover of 2 Million Swedish crowns. Hultdins relocated the company to Malå from Aspliden after striking a deal of cranes, grapples, and tracks for 45 tractors.
A new invention in 1965 started a new product called Partractorn, which was a joint venture between Hultdins and its dealer of Nuffield engines. The Partractor was a forestry-equipped tractor with two engines that operated independent of each other for the tractor drive system. Steering of the machine was made by adjusting the RPM on each engine. Hultdins built 40 machines before they had to cease production due to new Government Regulations which disallowed this type of steering concept.
Later in the 1970’s the company grew into a producer for other industries. Hultdins manufactured everything from wagons for the mining industry and robots for painting. Hultdins had about 100 employees during this period.
A new strategy in the 80’s led to construction of the company that you see today with focus on their own products.
