    First feed rollers are produced. Fortunately we got those back from our good customer after (about) 13 000 working hours. We managed to make the deal when he came back to get a new pair for his John Deere 745 harvester head.

    Export sales starts to Poland and Sweden as first official Balmec reseller agreements are made with Saltus Serwis S.C. and Stigs Maskin AB

    The very first Balmec feed rollers ever made - this is how they look after 13 000 working hours.

    Close co-operation with our main steel supplier SSAB leads to Balmec’s very first delimbing knives. They are designed for John Deere 758HD harvester head and because of several improvements in construction, we sometimes see them running even today (after “who-knows-how-many-working-hours”)

    John Deere Forestry starts to sell all of our products through its retail network across Europe. First sales are also made to Russia and Brazil.

    Balmec buys a part of old peat producing factory founded in 1938. Entire production and machinery is moved from two rental locations in Pärnu, 30km outside of city – a small village named Tootsi. As the facility is really old, a lot of construction work and renovation needs to be done. This remains a challenge even today as we always want something to be better in the factory.

    First official reseller in Australia.
