Rammer was originally established in 1978 in Lahti, Finland as a manufacturer specializing in large hydraulic hammers for the construction and mining industries. After decades of success selling it complete range of Hydraulic Hammers, Pedistal mounted booms, Cutter-crushers, pulverizers and Grapples, Rammer is now a Brand of Sandvik Mining and Construction, under the Sandvik Group.
As part of the Sandvik strategy the Rammer Brand was dissolved into Sandvik Mining and Construction's own offering during 2008, but after 6 years of increasingly high demand from end users of the products and Sandvik's own breaker dealer network, in 2012 the Rammer brand was relaunched

Rammer was responsible for the development of the Constant Blow Energy operating principle that is favoured by hydraulic hammer customers across the world; and the first to bring a full line-up of sound-suppressed CITY breakers to the market to satisfy the needs of customers working in urban and noise-sensitive applications.
