The production of Gremo machines will move to the Eco Log Factory in Söderhamn.
Eco Log and Gremo are now planning for a common future as a strong and comprehensive operator in the forest machine business. A first step has been taken as an Intent of Merger has been signed to move the production of Gremo machines to the Eco Log Factory in Söderhamn - a move that is planned for Summer 2020. Eco Log sees big potential in a merger that is completely in line with the company’s strategy of growth and a positive development for existing as well as new customers to both Eco Log and Gremo.
Eco Log will be able to offer a complete range of forwarders and harvesters, from small to big, with capacity and benefits suited for any job or any terrain that their customers operate in. The extended machine range and a more efficient after-sales organization, with an even higher service level than before, will be a positive development to both Eco Log and Gremo customers.
A merger of the two companies results in a range of forwarders from 7.5 to 20 tonnes, which meets the varied demands and needs of the market. Also, the already wide range of Eco Log harvesters are now complemented with a smaller 8-wheeled harvester that enables environmentally friendly and sustainable forestry - even in highly sensitive terrain. The existing facts of the merger are as follows:
- An Intent of Merger has been signed by Eco Log and Gremo.
- From Summer 2020 all machines will be produced in the Eco Log Factory in Söderhamn.
- All sales will be handled by the Eco Log organization from Summer 2020.
- Gremo Maskin Service (GMS) will continue as a service provider in the Gremo Factory in Ätran. Source
