Tigercat Moves Assembly of Europe-bound Machines
Published on: Friday 20th April 2012
BRANTFORD ON, APRIL 20, 2012 – In a move to improve service and decrease costs within the European market, Tigercat has officially relocated assembly of wheeled harvesters and forwarders from the somewhat remote Tigercat facility in Hede, Sweden to a newly constructed assembly facility in Kincardineshire, Scotland.
This move is another step in the process of increasing Tigercat’s presence in western Europe and Scandinavia. The existing facility in Hede will serve as Tigercat’s Swedish sales office, service facility and spare parts warehouse. In addition, Tigercat has sales personnel and service technicians strategically located in other forestry regions of Sweden.
Moving the assembly of harvesters and forwarders to Scotland will reduce transportation costs of both components and final assembled machines. The new facility is strategically located to serve both western Europe and Scandinavia.

As part of Tigercat’s European market expansion strategy, the Clohse Group has been named authorized dealer for Belgium and several other neighbouring countries including Luxembourg, Netherlands, Germany and the Paris, Strasbourg and Dijon regions of northern France.
