PRESS RELEASE

March 13, 2018

 

Finnish forest machine manufacturer Logset Oy and Brazilian heavy equipment dealer PESA (Paraná Equipamentos S/A) have signed a dealership agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, PESA will sell Logset machines, parts and services for the products manufactured by Logset. PESA’s territory of action covers the Southern Brazilian states of Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul.

Through Logset forest machines, PESA gains technology leadership in CTL systems. Logset machines fit perfectly to PESA’s CAT machine range.

- We’ve wanted to improve our presence in Brazil for some time, and the talks we had with PESA developed smoothly into an agreement. The Brazilian forestry is expanding fast. The Southern Brazilian states are rich in pine, which suits Logset’s harvester heads perfectly. For the Southern eucalyptus areas, the Logset TH65 Euca is the perfect match with excellent debarking results. PESA is a partner with an existing customer base, capable and motivated personnel, and excellent resources, including their own rental fleet, for starting a successful collaboration with Logset.  We were convinced by their product support capability, and their CAT machines fit well as base machines for our TH heads. I believe that Brazil will become an even more important market for Logset, says Tapio Nikkanen, Chairman of the board.

- Collaboration with Logset is a milestone for the development of the PESA forestry segment in southern Brazil. We are very happy with the start of this new partnership. We are sure that we will be able to serve our customers better with complete solutions, thereby increasing the efficiency and safety in the productive process of each of them, says Bernardo Borio, Commercial director of PESA.
