    Södra is making extensive investments in the sawmill at Värö, primarily in final trimming and drying, but also in other parts of the facility. “In April last year, we announced our plans to build a cross-laminated timber (CLT) facility at Värö. We can now see that our investment in the CLT facility will also make it possible for us to improve the flow and customer offering for our sawn timber, and have therefore decided to make additional investments in Värö,” said Jörgen Lindquist, President of the Södra Wood business area. / Södra

  • Bergs Timber applies for an increased production permit for the sawmill in Mörlunda

    Etiketter: Wood
    Bergs Timber started sawmill production in Mörlunda 100 years ago. The sawmill has developed over the years. For one period of time, it consisted of three saw lines and several production lines for planing of different products. In 2012 and 2013, major changes were made with staff reductions. At the same time, an investment was made which made it possible to focus on small log sawing. The conversion to small log sawing and planing has been successful and the Mörlunda plant has had a good financial development. In 2018, we also invested in a new boiler, which has had a good effect. / Bergs Timber
