HARVESTING unit manufacturer SP Maskiner AB is to merge with Eco Log.

The merger is an important part of Eco Log’s long-term plan, the company said. Over the past two years, Eco Log has followed a clear growth strategy, which is said to be progressing well.

“A lot has happened with us at Eco Log in a relatively short time, including the acquisition of the sales company Eco Log Försäljning AB and the merger with Gremo, which means that we now have the market’s most comprehensive forwarder line-up. The merger with SP widens our range even more, making Eco Log a complete supplier with a comprehensive product that covers the many and varied needs of forestry across the globe,” said Anders Gustafson, Eco Log CEO.

The merger with SP means that a new Eco Log harvester head will be launched, based on SP technology but with Eco Log’s design and features.

“It is very exciting to develop and follow up the results on a unit optimised for Eco Log’s machines. I am positive that it will be a very competitive combination,” Mr Gustafson added.

At the same time, production of SP’s existing range continues as before, and Martin Bredenfeldt, CEO of SP Maskiner AB, said that the merger provides both stability and the opportunity to invest in the company and its products going forward.

 He commented: “Today we offer units with high performance and quality, which we will of course continue with. Existing customers can feel completely confident that our current products and the SP brand remain and that we will also have the opportunity to invest in it even more in the future.”
