Dynapac is one of the world leaders in the production and supply of construction and road construction equipment, in particular, various sealing equipment.
The history of the company begins in the distant 1934, when a patent was received for the use of vibration to compact concrete. This is how AB Vibro-Betong was founded in Stockholm. Mechanical engineer Hilding Svenson took part in the development. In 1940 the company name changed to AB Vibro-Verken. A year later, the first plant opens in the Swedish city of Jungby. The second plant was opened in 1946 in the USA.
The production of the first vibrating plate took place in 1947. She weighed almost 1500 kg and was named "frog". Based on the technology used, a research laboratory was opened, which made it possible to improve the development. Already in 1953 the vibratory roller was produced.
In 1958, the production capacity was expanded and another plant opened in Sorocaba, Brazil. It produces mainly road machinery.
Under the real brand, the history of Dynapac begins in 1973, when the company receives the name Dynapac AB. In 1981, the company expanded rapidly. The expansion of the production area included the purchase of the Japanese Watanabe plant. The specialization of this plant was the production of rollers. This is how Dinapak became the owner of Japanese ice rink technology. After 3 years, the company acquires the Hoes plant in Germany, which specializes in quality asphalt pavers.
In 1993, one of the key events in the history of the company takes place - the merger with Hitachi. Two years later, Dynapac again acquires the German asphalt paver company Demarg Schader.
In 2001, a new plant was opened in China, in the city of Tianjin, and in 2006, another plant in the USA. A year later, the company becomes part of the Atlas Copco group.
The first production base was soon opened in Sweden. The American plant was put into operation in 1946. In 1958 the company received its present name - Dynapac. Today the company is a subsidiary of Atlas Copco Road Construction Equipment Corporation. The newest production site is the Chinese plant, built in 2001.
