Starts Production

On New Loaders;

Potential To Make

30,000 Per Year



Alo, a Swedish company that owns Alo Tennessee, the former Bush Hog plant in Telford, this week announced, "The factory is now commencing the production of a completely new series of loaders."

Meanwhile, Alo Tennessee said it is "continuing to produce loaders from the company's existing series suitable for the North American market.

"In addition, the factory produces a full range of tractor brackets and implements" that can be attached to tractors.

Olle Pehrsson, Alo's managing director, said in a press release,"We are delighted to have been able to get this new facility up and running so smoothly, so quickly.

He said the Alo Tennessee plant has the potential of producing "30,000 loaders per year."

Pehrsson added, "Alo USA, our own USA sales company previously located in Winston-Salem, was also relocated into Telford at the beginning of July, providing much more efficency with everything gathered in one place."

The Alo Tennessee plant began operations at its Washington County plant on Aug, 17, 2009, with a work force of 44, a spokesperson said.

She said the plant now has 110 employees, and "I think we'll keep on growing."


In June, 2009, Alo Tennessee, a division of the Swedish company Alo AB, bought the Bush Hog plant in Telford.

Bush Hog had announced earlier in 2009 plans to close the Telford plant if a buyer could not be found.

Just before the sale, Bush Hog had notified the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development that it would be laying off 141 employees at the plant.

Alo develops, produces, and globally markets, front-loaders and their equipment. The company sells products under independent brands, Quicke and Trima, and manufactures products for leading tractor manufacturers.

Alo was reported in 2009 to have five factories in three countries and sales companies in eight countries.
