Forest Machine Services Ltd was founded in August 2006 by Stephen Wills and Kenny Dobson after they gave up the Logset forestry machine dealership for the North of England and Scotland. Kenny then retired in 2016 after 10 successful years with the business and is now working part time to promote the FMS575 stroke head which is being built by the company. A new partner in the business is Graham Johnston who has a vast knowledge of steel fabrication from operating his own company (Greenline Engineering ) for many years, He then moved to work for Case Newholland in Russia before returning to the UK and working on the assembly of large offshore pipe and cable laying equipment. The independent approach has allowed us to look for machinery solutions around the world, we currently import and supply equipment and parts from USA, Canada, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Austria, France, Italy and China, as well as machinery built in the UK.
