Ponsse opens new facility in UK

06/12/2017 - 08:04 AM

Ponsse UK Ltd, a subsidiary of Ponsse Plc, has opened its new facility in Annan, Scotland.

“The new premises are specifically designed for servicing forestry equipment, and will enable a good customer service and growth in the future as well,” says Ponsse UK’s managing director Gary Glendinning.

In the new premises, four machines can be serviced at the same time. As well as spare part sales and warehousing, the service centre has training facilities for customer, driver and staff training. 

In addition to the new premises, other changes will be made at the turn of the year. Gary Glendinning joins Ponsse as area director, responsible for the markets in Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia. In addition, Glendinning will continue as the managing director for Ponsse Ireland. The post of managing director at Ponsse UK will be taken up by Dean Robson, who transfers to the position from machine sales. Like Gary Glendinning, Dean Robson also has been a long-time Ponsse employee. He joined Ponsse in 2004, in spare parts sales.

The first PONSSE forest machine was seen in UK forests in 1994, and two years later the first PONSSE service centres were opened in the UK: one in Beattock, Scotland, and the other in Neath, Wales. Both operations were transferred to Lockerbie, Scotland at the turn of the millennium. The Ponsse facility in Annan currently has 24 staff. At the opening ceremony, the employees were rewarded for their 10- and 20-year careers with the company.
