30th anniversary and Mercedes-Benz engines for machines
Ponsse's 30th anniversary party is organised on board the Viking Cinderella, and the guests are taken by surprise when a completely new 2001 product family with Mercedes-Benz engines is launched.
The latest addition to the product family is the Beaver harvester.
At the same time OptiControl, a digital control system created as a result of Ponsse's own development work, is launched.
Retailers open in Canada, ALPA New Brunswick / Lacroix Quebec.
