Komatsu to grow forestry machine sales in North America and ASEAN

Japanese machinery maker aims to boost segment's revenue by 40%

Komatsu will sell automated tree planters to promote reforestation.

TOKYO -- Japanese equipment maker Komatsu hopes to generate 140 billion yen ($1.27 billion) in revenue from forest machinery after four years, which would mark a 40% increase, due to robust housing and material demand.

Komatsu intends to fulfill its goal by offering a stronger lineup of equipment such as feller bunchers and forwarders for the North American market. The U.S. has the fourth largest distribution of forests in the world, in terms of area.
