Leo was the founder of the Prentice brand and at the forefront of the forest machinery industry starting in 1945. Leo’s first major contribution to the forest machinery industry was a hydraulic truck mounted log loading machine called the Prentice knuckleboom log loader. Later in the 1970’s, Leo founded Multitek with a core focus on wood processing machinery.
Today many of the original concepts including the shuttle grapple log infeed system, innovative splitting systems, and high standard of service and quality are at the forefront of each Multitek product.
