Company History

Ramtec's history can be traced back to the 70's when world-renowned Rammer was established in 1978. Over the years, the company changed hands and eventually became part of Sandvik Mining and Construction. The current factory was built in 1996 to manufacture crushers and hydraulic hammer housings. In 2002, the factory was sold to Ramtec by a management buyout arrangement (MBO).

We are proud of our solid background, which provides us with an excellent source of knowledge and experience for building our future.
