124 BJÖRNEBORGS JÄRNVERKS AKTIEBOLAG

THE FOUNDRY AND MACHINE SHOP, &c.

The first foundry and the first machine shop were erected in 1872-1873, during
the same fundamental period of re-establishment as the rest of the Works.

In 1915, however, the foundry was thoroughly reconstructed and modernised, so
that it is now at the height of technical perfection. The Company makes splendid
castings, specially suited for cylinders and other machinery parts subjected to a
heavy strain.

The machine shop is being rebuilt and extended this year, so as to become an
absolutely first class establishment.

The Company also owns a saw-mill.
