Storebro Industrier AB – The Company in Sweden

Storebro Industry AB was established in 1991 by Hans Åhsgren after the closure of Storebro Machine Tools ( former Storebro Bruks ). The new company acquired the right to produce all manual Storebro machine tools.  Since then the business has mainly turned to the reconditioning of machine tools, manufacturing and stockholding of spare parts, and the sales and service of new and old machine tools.

When it comes to reconditioning of midsized machinetools we are the largest company in Sweden today. Acquisition of different machine tool brands has included many of the most well-known Swedish machine tool brands. Lathes account for approximately half of our reconditioning business with the remainder on milling and grinding machines respectivly.
