Eco Log and Gremo moving forward in yellow tones
On April 17th, we were happy to announce the upcoming merger of Eco Log and Gremo. Now, not more than three weeks later, the planning and preparations for future production have already begun and the very first Gremo machine is in place in the Eco Log factory in Söderhamn.
Since the information of the Merger went public, repeated questions have been asked about the looks of the machines, their names and which models will be part of the future range. The interest has been big with a lot of great suggestions for new names. We can now announce that all machines will carry both the Eco Log name and color moving forward. However, as a customer, you can be assured that beneath the yellow surface the content will still be recognized regardless if your earlier experience comes from Eco Log or Gremo.
-Gremo machines have amazing qualities that we know are highly valued amongst the customers. Even if the machines will be named and look like Eco Log, it is very important to us that all customers feel confident in what they get and recognize the functionality they are used to. This goes for everyone, whether you are an existing or new customer or if you drive an Eco Log or a Gremo. Naturally, we will integrate Gremo Service and After-Sales in our existing organization to make sure customers of Gremo will still experience the same high up-time as before, says Mr. Anders Gustafson, CEO Eco Log.
Since Gremo’s smaller forwarders are now added to the existing Eco Log range, we will see a Machine Line-up consisting of no less than five forwarder models with a loading capacity from 8.5 to 20 tonnes. Also, the already-wide range of Eco Log harvesters will be complemented with a small, eight-wheeled harvester and, to Mr. Gustafson, this means an opportunity not only to increase the customers’ benefit but also to attract new customers going forward.
-Gremo forwarders and harvester make a perfect match to existing Eco Log Products. Naturally, we will maintain, nurture and develop their range in true Gremo spirit moving on. Due to the merger, we will be able to offer our customers one of the widest ranges on the market with forest machines in different sizes, capacity and with qualities to master the many and varied tasks of modern Forestry. We will still be the same, familiar Company but with an even higher ability to provide our customers with exactly what they ask for, says Mr. Anders Gustafson.
- All machines will carry both the Eco Log name and colors going forward.
- The forwarder Line-up will include:
- Eco Log 750 (previously Gremo), load capacity 8.5 tonnes.

- Eco Log 574F, load capacity 14 tonnes
- Eco Log 594F, load capacity 20 tonnes
