Elmas inaugurated a Regional John Deere Forestry Sales and Service Centre

Elmas, a company headquartered in Brasov, leading manufacturer of material lifting equipment, inaugurated last week an investment amounting to about 2 million EUR in a Regional Sales and Service Centre for John Deere Forestry in Sanpaul, Mures County.  

The Regional Centre covers an area of 22,000 sqm, accommodating a repair and machinery wash bay (400 sqm), a modern showroom and administrative offices (250 sqm), a spare parts warehouse (150 sqm), a training centre for forestry machinery operators (235 sqm) and a test track for machinery (13,000 sqm).
The forestry machinery repair bay is equipped with facilities for washing, oil change, mechanics and hydraulics to offer customers access to a diversified package of services. The facility for training operators created inside the Regional Centre
allows the organization of training classes for operating forestry machinery (harvesters, forwarders)
and is endowed with a classroom, a simulator that creates an environment identical to the operating
space of the forestry machinery cabin and accommodation for trainees throughout the training period.

Elmas has been the exclusive dealer of John Deere Forestry for forestry machinery in Romania since March 2010.
Romania continues to provide a high potential of market growth in the field of forestry. The most popular brand in forestry,
John Deere became engaged in developing specific equipment, the machinery being specifically designed for maximum
productivity and reduced impact on the environment.
”This important investment consolidates the partnership with John Deere Forestry and we hope our collaboration will be
a long one in the future,” said Marius Paraipan – Brand Manager in Elmas.

The company Elmas Brasov was founded in 1990 with 100% Romanian capital.
The main activity of the company is the manufacture of lifting and handling equipment. 
The headquarters of the company are located in Brașov and the manufacture, storage,
repair and administrative facilities stretch over an area of 35,000 square meters.
The company has eight branches nationwide and 3 abroad.
