At Logosol’s regular World Meeting, staff, dealers and ambassadors meet at Logosol’s head office in Härnösand!
Guests from 18 different countries come together to saw, socialize and learn more about Logosol and their products. The row of flags below represents the different nationalities of our guests.
Ferry Svan demonstrated underhand chop
Out in the demo area, all the sawmills and the CH3 planer were lined up and everyone who wanted to had the opportunity to do some sawing and planing. Also present was Ferry Svan who, given his great success at Stihl Timbersports, certainly knows how to handle both a chainsaw and an axe. He demonstrated his approach and technique in the discipline of the underhand chop, which involves chopping a hefty log in half using an axe in the shortest possible time. Once he got going, you had to pay attention. It took only a few seconds before the log was in two pieces.
During the meeting, all the guests had a chance to speak to the different departments at Logosol. Many were impressed by Logosol’s factory and our efficient and professional production of sawmills and planing machines. One of them was André Brockschmidt from Bauforum24, a large German machinery community which tests and reviews different products. André had recently tested Logosol’s F2+ chain sawmill and was very pleased with the product.
“I’m generally very impressed with Logosol’s products and the fact that it’s a family-owned company with its own factory. I’ll be leaving the meeting in a very positive mood,” André says.
Professional adventurers with their own sawmill
A number of guests travelled a long way to attend the meeting;
but among those who had travelled the furthest were Kielyn and Dave Marrone, who run Lure of the North, an adventure company. They take their clients on spectacular trips into the Canadian wilderness. Kielyn appeared in the TV series Alone in which she survived for 80 days alone in the wilderness with only a few items to help her.
“It’s been an absolutely fantastic weekend and incredibly fun to meet the people behind the machines we use. Everyone has been warm and friendly and we’re impressed by the focus on quality at all levels and the product development,” says Kielyn. With their F2+ chain sawmill, the Marrones have big plans to build cottages and other things for their company.
A boat trip along Sweden’s High Coast took the whole group up to beautiful Björkudden and on the way Fresh Cut got the chance to speak to Fredrik Forssberg, CEO of Logosol.
“It’s my first time attending a Logosol World Meeting and I have to say that I feel incredibly proud to be a part of this group. Everyone was incredibly motivated and inspired and I’ve made many new friends in the past two days. I’m already looking forward to the next meeting!”
Ferry Svan impressed with his awesome technique as guests from all over the world gathered at Logosol in Härnösand.
