Hammar Maskin AB, the parent company, was established in 1974. It is a family company with Mr Bengt-Olof Hammar as Managing Director. From a humble start the company has grown to be the largest producer of Sideloaders (Sidelifters, Swinglifters or Self Loading Trailers) in the world. This achievement has been possible by focusing on safety and quality from the start until today.


Hammar Maskin (M) Sdn Bhd was set up in early 2003, with the immediate goal to give the HAMMAR operators a better after sales service. Today more than 500 HAMMAR units have been delivered to Malaysian customers, with well over 70% of all new Malaysian Sideloaders today being delivered by Hammar.
