January 2010 – the beginning of a new, exciting decade!

Further development of our log handling equipment will continue throughout the new decade.

In recent years, demands made on noise levels and safety have increased significantly. We are constantly improving and refining these aspects of our machinery. The same is true for the ever-increasing demands on operational reliability and high capacities.

We have always tried to keep up the dialogue with our customers to make sure we can meet their requirements and expectations regarding our machinery and installations. Our aim is to be a partner that our customers can rely on for decades to come.
