The 2020 Subsidiary of the Year is Ponsse OOO and the Dealer of the Year is Wahlers Forsttechnik
Every year, Ponsse gives out awards for the most merited subsidiary and dealer. The 2020 Subsidiary of the Year is Ponsse OOO in Russia, and the Dealer of the Year is Wahlers Forsttechnik in Germany.
The most merited companies are selected from among the Group’s 12 subsidiaries and the network of 45 PONSSE dealers. The Subsidiary of the Year and Dealer of the Year were announced in a joint network event on 18 May.
The 2020 Subsidiary of the Year is Ponsse OOO in Russia
The criteria for selecting the Subsidiary of the Year include, for example, profitability of the company’s operations and business growth compared to the previous year. The operations are evaluated annually using the same criteria. In addition to financial criteria, a strong market share and extensive and systematic development of their after sales services and retailer network were also highlighted when selecting Ponsse OOO as the recipient of the award. Furthermore, job satisfaction among the subsidiary’s own personnel is high in Russia. Ponsse established its Russian subsidiary in 2005, but the first PONSSE machines were already used in Russia in the 1980s.
The 2020 Dealer of the Year is the family-owned company Wahlers Forsttechnik
The recipient of the Dealer of the Year award is selected on the basis of sales data and service results. Other criteria include assessments of R&D, administration and finances, as well as production and service operations. Wahlers’ operations remained very strong and reliable throughout the year overshadowed by the coronavirus pandemic. In addition, we had a strong market share in Germany during 2020. Established in 1935, the family-owned Wahlers Forsttechnik GmbH & Co.KG has been a Ponsse retailer in Germany since 1993 and has also operated in Austria since 2019 through their own subsidiary.
