In 2009 Komatsu Forest recognised the need to expand its product range to meet the developing changes in the hardwood chip market especially for export. After a market search KF found the Peterson chippers and grinders to be global market leaders in technology which fitted with the KF product mix and market strategies.

The timing proved right as Peterson was also looking for a committed distributor for their chippers and grinders in the forest and green waste markets to take them to the next level in Australia. This led to several meetings with the two companies appreciating the benefits each had to offer and thus signed a dealer agreement on the 1st October 2010.

The Komatsu Forest/Peterson partnership has proven successful from the beginning and now dominate the Australian market.
