Husqvarna invests in a new production line for robot mowers


HUSQVARNA, the pioneer of robotic mowing and smart mowing technology, recently launched a new range of Ceora products at its Newton Aycliffe manufacturing site and increased investment.

To support its new processes, Husqvarna is making new investments in the region through the development of its team. Husqvarna now spends over £100,000 a year on staff training and development, nurturing talent across the North East in several areas with a plan to recruit five more technical apprentices this year.

The new Husqvarna Ceora, which is manufactured only at Newton Aycliffe – the only Husqvarna Group plant producing the product – can independently mow an area of ​​up to 75,000m² day and night, dramatically reducing overall costs by around 30% and improving the quality of the grass in professional green spaces throughout the territory.

A Husqvarna residential robot lawn mower, used in home gardens, contains around 300 components, while Ceora contains almost four times that number. This is a complex assembly process, which has been developed by Husqvarna in-house systems in County Durham to be able to guarantee the quality of manufacture.

Husqvarna is also rolling out lithium-ion battery production at its factory, for use across its range of robotic lawnmowers. The company has invested over £1million in semi-automatic production processes to create an in-house battery manufacturing facility for everything from automatic soldering, welding, laser marking and testing.

Caraline Robinson, Manufacturing Director at Husqvarna UK, said: “With the first product sales for Ceora already underway, the outlook for Husqvarna and our Newton Aycliffe manufacturing site is promising.

“We have a number of new product innovations in the pipeline for the future and plenty of opportunities for expansion, so this is a really exciting time for the company.”
