Morbark acquires Denis Cimaf

January 9, 2019 -  By

Morbark acquired Denis Cimaf, a company specializing in the development of brushcutter-mulcher attachments for excavators, skid-steers, forestry tractors, graders and other types of heavy equipment.

The acquisition is part of Morbark’s strategic focus on broadening the range of tree care and industrial equipment, aftermarket parts and service offered to its customers, said the company.

Denis Cimaf manufactures four main products: the DAH series, industrial mulcher attachments for excavators; the DAF series, attachments for skid-steers and other dedicated carriers; the DTN series, industrial brushcutters-mowers for roadside maintenance; and the EWF series, hydraulic power packs.

“Denis Cimaf’s line of attachments is complementary to our current tree care and industrial product lines,” said Dave Herr, CEO of Morbark. “In fact, Denis Cimaf mulcher heads have been an available option on our Rayco carriers for many years. The company’s patented mulcher head design has enabled them to become the mulcher head attachment of choice among intensive vegetation control, land clearing, roadside transmission lines, pipeline maintenance and forest fire prevention contractors.”

The transaction is a strategic fit for both companies, Morbark said. Benjamin-Pierre and Simon Denis, sons of Denis Cimaf founders Laurent Denis and Monique Vaillancourt, will continue to lead the company. Morbark will operate Denis Cimaf as a new division maintaining its brand identity, and Denis Cimaf’s management team will continue to manage its operations.

“The Denis Cimaf team and I are extremely excited to be joining the Morbark family,” said Benjamin-Pierre Denis. “Denis Cimaf is a fantastic business with committed and passionate associates, a great track record and enormous global potential. Being part of the Morbark family will enable us to continue to grow the business further and faster.”
