The History



Timars - historia

Timars Svets & Smide AB (Timars Welding and Forge) was founded in Falkenberg, Sweden, in year 1976 by Timar Gustavsson. Mr. Gustavsson had worked as a mechanic and electrician on the sea but was back at his hometown and worked as a mechanic and welder. The company was first founded to support local companies in Falkenberg. In 1978 they were four welders working in the company and they rented a workshop at Falkasvagen in Falkenberg.

In 1983, an Australian friend to Timar sent a container spreader (called CEL-Lift) together with a fixture to Timars and this was the start of Timars Port Equipment and the first semi-automatic container spreaders. The first container spreaders were delivered to Vasteras in Sweden in 1984, but soon after the spreaders started to go on export as well.

In 1985, Timars manufactured the first fish grading machine for EKS Fish Machinery. It was a vibration grader and this was the start of Timars Fish Machinery and in 1987 Timars acquired EKS Fish Machinery and continued to develop own grading machines.

Timars current owners Mikael Strandh and Peter Stenbeck started at Timars in 1986 and 1992 respectively.  

In 1990 Timars build their own workshop at the current site at Industrivagen 12 in Falkenberg and one year later the first paintshop was build close to the workshop. The paintshop  was later acquired by Industrilackeringen which still is Timars partner when it comes to surface treatment when it comes to blasting and painting.

In 1993 Timars had 20 employees and continued to grow.

The agency for Magyar tanktrailers was picked up in 1995 and Timars Trade was founded for handling the tanktrailer agency for the Swedish market. This was the start of Timars Trailer Workshop as well and followed by large orders of tanktrailers to Swedish customers.

Timars started to pick up larger orders for example with special containers to the Norwegian Post and reception station for herring in the Swedish town of Vastervik.

The Port Equipment also developed and in the start of 2000 century, the first Overheight frames and Timars Gravity Centrelizer was developed and manufactured. The first Overheight frame was semi-automatic and followed by the first fully automatic Overheight frame in 2004.

Timars was certified against ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 in 2002 and a year later the company won the first large order to FMV (Swedish Defense Material Administration) for a special transport system for Tugboats. This was the first of many orders to FMV in the years to come and FMV is still an important customer for Timars.

During 2009 to 2014 Timars made a generational change and in 2014 Timar Gustavsson finished his successful career at Timars Svets and Smide and left the company to its current owners Mikael Strandh and Peter Stenbeck.

In 2011 a new workshop for mainly assembling was build next to the existing workshop.

And in 2015 Timars was certified according to ISO 3834-2.

The rich history of constantly finding new solutions, new products and new markets has shaped Timars and been the success for the company. The customers have always been in focus and the right quality the goal.
