Strongco Corporation has partnered with Sweden’s Eco Log Group to become the exclusive dealer for their forestry machines throughout all of Canada.
Eco Log Group produces harvesters, which are known for their unique pendulum arm technique, enabling outstanding ground clearance, mobility and high productivity in any terrain. The machines are powered by Volvo Penta engines.
“The addition of Eco Log as a complementary line to our Construction Equipment Division is a great fit,” said Oliver Nachevski, President and Chief Executive Officer for Strongco.
“We’re now able to offer our forestry based customers across Canada a more vertical product offering to help with all activities from harvesting at the stump and forwarding to roadside to the many material handling solutions we already offer at the mill yards.”
Strongco’s Construction Equipment division has been supporting customers in the forestry industry for many years from their 25 branches located in Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces.
The agreement will strengthen both Eco Log’s and Strongco’s geographic reach in the forestry market in Canada.
Based in Söderhamn, Sweden, Eco Log’s home base has been manufacturing forestry equipment since 1965. However, the Eco Log name has been in existence for about a decade. Today, the company manufactures more than a dozen harvesters and forwarders.
“We’re proud to partner with Strongco and we’re confident that their deep industry knowledge of the forestry market and their strong parts and service capabilities will exceed customer expectations and help our business grow throughout Canada,” said Anders Gustafson, CEO for Eco Log Group.
