ATA Timber acquires two Rorvik sawmills6 July 2016
Swedish sawmiller ATA Timber is to acquire two sawmills from Rorvik Timber.
The transfer of the sawmills in Rorvik and Sandsjöfors will be completed in September and December respectively.
ATA Timber, which owns sawmills in Eneryda, Widtsköfle, Aboda and Moheda, said the move reinforced its presence in the region.
The sawmill in Rorvik will resume normal production, while the small log sawmill in Sandsjöfors will be dismantled and replaced by a new modern saw line. The start of production of this line is planned for spring / summer 2017.
Rorvik Timber said it would continue to push for further structural changes in the sawmill industry in southern Sweden to create long-term profitability.
Rorvik continues to own sawmills in Myresjöfönster (finger-jointed timber), Linghem and Boxholm with a capacity for normal production of 450,000m3 of sawn goods.
