Logging Congress is the largest static show in the Midwest and very important to our Great Lakes market also. This year the fair was held on 6th to 7th September at the Michigan State Fairgrounds in Escanaba, Michigan. The fair displayed also the very first Ponsse machine that came to the United States.
Ponsse offers the most comprehensive and versatile selection of the best forestry technology in the market – for all challenges in harvesting. At the Elmia Wood 2013 fair in Jönköping, Sweden, Ponsse introduced new and innovative forest machine technology for productive and environmentally friendly logging.

“We never go so deep that we can’t get back up”
This was the motto of Einari Vidgrén from Vieremä, founder of the forest machine company Ponsse Plc, who passed away in 2010. The son of a of a small-scale farmer, he went to elementary school before working his way from the frozen soil of the Savo region to logging sites all around the world through hard work, concerted effort and resourcefulness.
