In 1999, the first Alstor 8 × 8 was driven out of the production factory in Dingle, Bohuslän.
Now over 1000 machines are rolling around Sweden and the rest of the world.
With the starting point, flexible load carrier with good terrain properties, Alstor has continued its development into a fully-fledged durable forestry machine. Today, it is a modern machine with extremely good maneuverability that is available in a variety of designs. Choose between a clean forwarder, a harvester or a combi machine. Over the years, the machine has been equipped with a number of options and specially adapted to a number of different operations. In 2017 came the first model of generation 3 where the previously model program's appreciated mechanical driveline was supplemented with a hydrostatic transmission and differential.
"Alstorowners" today are everything from professional contractors, energy companies, municipalities, rescue services and self-employed forest owners.
Alstor is appreciated by its owners for the robust and flexible construction that provides simple service and good economy.
The family business with 20 employees is now led by his son Kristian Laurell, who proudly continues to produce an all-Swedish product. In newly renovated and adapted premises, the very close collaboration with local subcontractors has created a quality-controlled work with good environmental thinking.
Alstor is today represented by about ten retailers in Sweden and another ten or so retailers around the world.
