Professional forest, park, and garden products manufacturer Husqvarna celebrated the launch of its new CEORA product line this year, signalling the beginning of a new era of commercial opportunities.

It’s been a challenging few years for Husqvarna – a specialist in the manufacture of a broad range of garden and forest equipment, including chainsaws, tractors, and robotic lawnmowers.

The emergence of Covid-19 in 2020, with government-mandated lockdowns which impacted operations at its Aycliffe site, led to actions being taken quickly to respond to the new normal.

“We are a highly seasonal business, and Covid-19 started just as we were at the peak of production in 2020,” reflects Caraline Robinson, manufacturing director at Husqvarna. “Nevertheless, we adapted well as a business, segregating our teams around the site, introducing masks and temperature checks, and moving online where possible – changes which we are currently in the process of now being able to ease.”
