US company Trimble has acquired the Finnish duo of Savcor and Silvadata, both of which stem from the forestry field and will complement Trimble’s Connected Forest division.

Trimble’s Connected Forest division offers management solutions for the full lifecycle of forestry, including, planning, planting, growing, harvesting, transporting and processing.

What Savcor brings to the equation, is software solutions to improve the efficiency throughout this process. The software solutions include raw material purchasing, harvesting, logistics and processing.

Silvadata, meanwhile, has developed a cloud-based collaboration network for participants in the forestry industry and also offers workflow automation services for forestry businesses. Its SilvaPro software is designed specifically with forest management, planning, wood procurement, work site planning and execution, in mind.

“The Savcor and Silvadata acquisitions build upon our strategy to provide global customers with a complete end-to-end ecosystem for forest management, traceability and timber processing,” explains Ken Moen, general manager of Trimble’s Forestry Division.
