Power to move mountains

And timber. Or inventory.

Since 1990, we at Melin & Carlsson have built up an acknowledged good competence in cylinder manufacturing. Our cylinders are used to move everything from excavated material and timber to grain, garbage and stock – on forklifts, trucks and construction machinery. In short, in all situations where you convey power.

Specialist in hydraulics

Since 1990, Melin & Carlsson has been developing and manufacturing hydraulic cylinders for mobile and stationary applications. Our production facility in Tranås employs around 70 people and has a turnover of SEK 120 million.

The specialty is cylinders in dimensions from 25/16 to 250/125 mm with strokes up to over 6000 mm.

Business philosophy

Our business philosophy – to deliver customer value and power to customers in the recycling, forestry, transport and construction industries – is gaining traction, especially with customers who demand customized solutions. For that, we are grateful to our competent employees, who provide strong support throughout the entire chain, from idea to delivery of the finished product.

Business partner with a focus on customer benefit

The major challenge in an industry characterized by short lead times is delivery precision. By controlling the processes, putting focus to the quality work and improving the forecasting tools, we guarantee that you get the right cylinder with the right function, delivered at the right time and in the right way.

Stronger together

In early 2021, the cylinder manufacturer Tubex AB with operations in Tranås and Borås was acquired. Just like Melin & Carlsson, Tubex manufactures hydraulic cylinders, but also has a product range in pneumatic cylinders that are powered by air.

A large product area is telescopic cylinders where Tubex has a leading position on the market. Something that complements our common range in a very good way. The business also includes E2 systems.

Welcome to put us to the test!
