The addition of Söderhamn Eriksson further cements USNR’s leadership position.

George Van Hoomissen, president and ceo of USNR, commented that he was very interested in the opportunity to acquire Söderhamn Eriksson because he felt that Söderhamn Eriksson’s strong market position in Europe would complement USNR’s strong position in North America, and that both companies’ positions would be strengthened as a result of the combination in South America, Australia/New Zealand, Russia, and Asia.

Söderhamn Erikson is known around the world for its high-quality log lines and edger systems, and for the Cambio debarker.
