The expansion continued and a factory was built for the manufacture of truck cabs also in the Netherlands.


The coachwork factories were acquired by Scania Vabis of Södertälje. The manufacture of truck cabs is still in Oskarshamn and is one of Kalmar County’s largest employers. The manufacture of the driver seats, to be fitted in the truck cabs, remained a Be-Ge production that continued in the new company Be-Ge Stolindustri AB. Later on the name of the company was changed to Be-Ge Industri AB, which after another renaming is today’s Be-Ge Seating AB.
