The Finland-based Ponsse Group has signed a retail agreement with PacWest Machinery for its sale and maintenance of Ponsse forest machines in Oregon, Washington and Idaho, including the existing service center in Coburg, Ore.
Ponsse announced that PacWest’s extensive service business network would strengthen Ponsse service and growth expectations for cut-to-length logging in the region. Established in the 1890s, PacWest also is a dealer for Volvo (trucks and construction equipment) and Metso (services for aggregate, mineral processing and metal refining) in the same three states. The company has sales and service centers in Portland, Eugene, Pasco, Spokane, Seattle, and Mt. Vernon.
