Twin Disc designs and manufactures marine and heavy-duty off-highway power transmission equipment. Mill Log has been a Twin Disc subsidiary for more than 20 years.

“Within our organization we will be able to reallocate resources to continue our focus on product development and engineering,” Batten said.

The deal is expected to close March 4.
