Erickson Inc. will provide timber-harvesting services to Asiatic Heli-Logging SDN BHD and Hormat Jadi SDN BHD in Sabah, Malaysia, as part of two contracts worth $9 million. Work will begin in September.
The two-year contract with Asiatic, a returning customer, provides a five-year renewal option for one Sikorsky S-64E.
The Hormat contract spans 18 months. Hormat is a new customer and is government-certified as an approved organization for harvesting using reduced impact logging techniques.
Erickson will work with these customers to harvest timber in steep mountainous terrain.
