TOMSK, Aug 19 – RIA Tomsk. The Finnish company Ponsse, one of the world's leading forestry equipment manufacturers, open its sales and service center in Tomsk; construction work at this facility has already begun and will end in late summer 2020, the deputy governor of the Tomsk region for agro-industrial policy and environmental management Andrey Knorr reported RIA Tomsk.

According to the official website of Ponsse, the Finnish company is one of the world leaders in the production of forestry equipment. The company is one of the creators of modern technologies for gentle logging. Ponsse forestry machines, in particular harvesters or forwarders, are purchased by most of Russia's largest forestry companies.

"Planning work is currently underway at the site on which the service center and sales center of the Finnish company Ponsse will be built. Moreover, it was in Tomsk, and not in Krasnoyarsk or Irkutsk. We have been striving for this for a long time. Next fall, a modern Ponsse center will work in Tomsk, the analogues of which there are only in Karelia and St. Petersburg", – Knorr said.

According to him, in 2019 Ponsse investors plan to prepare a site for construction and begin construction work, by the end of summer 2020 the center will be able to open its doors. According to the vice-governor, it will be the best service center for forestry equipment beyond the Urals and forestry specialists will come to study in Tomsk.

"It will be not only a sales center, but also a training center. A class for 30 people with modern simulators is being designed there. We will train craftsmen to work on forwarders and harvesters (special forestry machines – Ed.)", – Knorr emphasized.

The Ponsse company center is being built on the left bank of the Tomsk river in the area of the logistics center. Knorr did not name the amount of investment in the project by the Finnish company. In addition to Ponsse, John Deere company plans to open its own sales and service center in Tomsk on the Irkutsk highway. "This is already a new industry, a completely different logging culture", – the deputy governor noted.
