SP Maskiner joins the Eco Log Group

A strong overall supplier when SP Maskiner joins the Eco Log Group

In the spring, the merger between Eco Log and Gremo was announced. Now SP Maskiner AB is also joining the joint group and for Eco Log it is an important part of the company’s long-term plan. Over the past two years, Eco Log has followed a clear growth strategy and Anders Gustafson, CEO of Eco Log, can state that the work so far is going according to plan.

– 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, says Mr Anders Gustafson.

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 unique features.

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

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

– 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, says Mr Martin Bredenfeldt.

Facts about the merger between Eco Log and SP Maskiner AB The main owners of the two companies, Accent Equity and Weland, have agreed that the companies will merge under the Eco Log Group. The group will consist of Eco Log Sweden AB, Eco Log Försäljning AB, Gremo AB, Gremo Maskinservice AB and SP Maskiner AB. The head office will be located in Söderhamn while the operations for SP will continue to be conducted in Ljungby.
