Petersons are very pleased to announce Hakmet as their new distributor in Canada. While its main office is located in Dorion of Quebec, just west of Montreal, their network of dealers reaching as far as British Columbia enable them to offer efficient service and assistance to both the east and west sides of the country.

Hakmet are also the distributor for Palax firewood processors, Nokka loaders and trailers and a range
of other forestry equipment that compliment the Peterson very well. Having been doing business in the silvicultural and forestry industries since 1977 Hakmet’s experience and reputation as a supplier of quality products fits well with the Peterson line.

Per Craig Hammond, “We are very pleased to be working with Hakmet, they have a great staff, excellent facilities and their experience in the industry is crucial. It is great our Canadian customers can now enjoy the support, services, and benefits, that come from having a local dealer in their country that is so well established.”

To launch the agency, Peterson’s Business Development Craig Hammond flew from New Zealand to Canada for agent training and demonstrations at the CAN-USA and Technibois Forestry shows. Both shows were very well attended and provided a great opportunity for the Peterson portable sawmill to work alongside Hakmet’s other products.

At both shows the Peterson 8” 24hp Honda WPF was on display. “The shows were a great chance to show more Canadians the advantages of a Peterson compared with other portable sawmills. The response to Hakmet’s new role as our agent here was very positive.

“These are exciting times for both Hakmet and Peterson as we look forward to a long future together. Canada is a market well-suited to our product and with Hakmet’s strong promotional channels and excellent customer service our customers can look forward to being well looked after,” Craig Hammond explains.
Jari and the team at Hakmet, very much look forward to assisting you with your Peterson enquiries. For more details on Peterson’s in Canada and to see a demonstration please contact;
