Balfor Firewood & Forestry Machinery

Spectrum Plant Ltd announced today that they have been appointed as sole UK importers for the Balfor range of firewood and forestry machinery. Italian built Balfor machines are already well known in the UK and across Europe for their large, high quality range of professional splitters, saw benches, conveyors and firewood processors.

Balfor are about to expand their product range to include winches, log trailers and log cranes so there was a clear requirement for better UK representation. Spectrum Plant are already one of the UK’s biggest Timberwolf main dealers and the sole UK importers for the innovative FSI range of stump grinders, so the partnership will enable both companies to increase their presence in the UK arb market.
Spectrum also announced today the appointment of Jim Ellson as Product Specialist for the Balfor range. Jim brings with him 5 years of previous experience with Balfor products and a huge amount of firewood industry knowledge.

Through this new partnership, the Balfor product range will be backed up by Spectrum’s exceptional sales and parts service across its network of depots and dealers. The addition of the Balfor equipment extends Spectrum Plant’s range enabling them to provide a complete product offering to the arb industry.

Mark Schaefer, MD of Spectrum Plant said “We specialise in providing high quality machinery, expert advice, service and support to the arboricultural industry. The Balfor range and Jim Ellson’s knowledge and expertise will allow us to grow our product range while continuing to deliver the high quality, reliable products that are an essential part of our customers’ business. ”
