Morbark announced that it has completed the acquisition of DENIS CIMAF Inc., based in Roxton Falls, Québec. This transaction represents the company’s second acquisition since private equity firm Stellex Capital Management LP acquired Morbark in 2016. The acquisition of Rayco Manufacturing in October 2017 brought a lineup of innovative equipment into the Morbark family across multiple product categories. In particular, Rayco stump cutters, aerial trimmers, forestry mulchers, and crawler trucks. The purchase of DENIS CIMAF is another step in the company’s strategic focus on broadening the range of tree care and industrial equipment, aftermarket parts, and service offered to their customers.
Benjamin-Pierre and Simon Denis, sons of DENIS CIMAF founders, Laurent Denis and Monique Vaillancourt, will continue to lead the DENIS CIMAF team to develop new products and help improve the company’s existing product lines.
Doosan Infracore North America LLC, a leading manufacturer of heavy construction equipment, announced it is opening a new 100,000-square-foot parts distribution center, serving its dealers and Doosan customers in the United States and Canada.
Strategically located, the new parts distribution center allows Doosan to provide both dealers and customers with better service options, deeper inventory, and faster parts delivery. The parts distribution center is located adjacent to the Doosan Infracore North America headquarters in Suwanee, Georgia, situated approximately 30 miles northeast of Atlanta.
Said Edward Song, CEO of Doosan Infracore North America, “We can significantly reduce shipping costs, and we can provide less than two-day delivery on a majority of our genuine Doosan parts delivered from our dedicated warehouse.”
