Husqvarna produced 25,000 motorcycle

Just days after celebrating the inauguration of a massive new Headquarters/R&D facility, Husqvarna Motorcycles hit a major production milestone on Friday October 2, 2009 as the 25,000th motorcycle was produced in the Biandronno factory in northern Italy. Making this achievement even more memorable was the fact that it was two years to the day since BMW acquired the historic brand and gave Husqvarna a fresh start.

"I am very happy to celebrate another nice event just a few days after the inauguration of our new Headquarters and R&D Center," said Rainer Thoma, President of Husqvarna Motorcycles. "This underlines the dynamic nature of the company. We now have the ability to create and build attractive new products at the highest level of quality and performance." Husqvarna celebrated the Headquarters grand opening back on September 21st.

"A great result has been achieved today by our factory," added Plant Manager Giuseppe Manacorda as the 2010 TE 450 rolled off the assembly line. "We produced the 25,000th motorcycle since Husqvarna has become a BMW brand and we are very proud of this accomplishment." Manacorda points out that this achievement is the result of a lot of hard work by the entire team. "In these two years, the production lines have been completely revised, we installed a new quality service and the logistics operation is now in the reconstruction phase."

Manacorda agrees with Thoma that the global economic crisis has deeply affected industry, but Husqvarna is racing ahead. "The company decided to continue investing energy and capital into the most updated production processes in order to remain a leading European motorcycle manufacturer. It is also remarkable that this investment has been made in the Varese area, which is traditionally known for the high professional standards of its people."
