Einari Vidgrén delivered the first PONSSE PAZ forest machine to machine entrepreneur Eero Vainikainen in 1971. On the wall of the shabby coffee room of the small machine shop, there was a map of Finland. A pin was placed on the location where the customer was based, Karttula. We will hand over the 10,000th PONSSE forest machine to the customer on Friday, 30 January. The map that started from a single pin has since gathered pins in more than forty countries. The 10,000th PONSSE machine will again be marked on the map on Karttula.
