Kiruna Wagon celebrates 20 years during 2024. It has been two decades of an uncompromising promise to our customers: to provide wagons of higher quality and sustainability, and with better transport efficiency than our competitors can offer. 

Our journey could have ended many years ago. For example, if we had compromised on quality and only competed on low CAPEX. Or if we had delivered substandard maintenance, and at the same time moved our base and engineering expertise to another location with more convenient recruitment opportunities. We didn’t. In fact, we never even considered the idea.

“Dig where you stand” is a well-known Swedish expression often used by Yngve Bergqvist, the founder of the world famous Icehotel in Jukkasjärvi, near Kiruna. Even if the grass is said to be greener on the other side, the winning concept for Kiruna Wagon has been to further development in our local area and within our own area of expertise.

We are today one of Scandinavia’s leading producers of railway wagons for the mining industry and continue to be trusted to deliver wagons to our oldest customer, LKAB, which is the closest neighbour to our workshop in Kiruna. Since 2022, a total of 120 new wagons have been ordered and are presently being built by our dedicated employees. The vast majority of the wagons we manufactured for LKAB 20 years ago are still in operation. We promise they will continue to be so for many years to come.

During our 20th anniversary, we enjoy looking back at past years. The cover image for our summer greeting is from 2007, when we rolled out a shiny new Bottom Dumper from the workshop as part of Sweden’s largest wagon project. It was a happy moment in our company history and we wish you an equally happy summer!

Best regards,

Fredrik Kangas
Managing Director
