Bergs Timber conducts organisational changes

2 July 2018

Swedish sawmiller Bergs Timber has announced organisational changes following its acquisition of Norvik Timber Industries’ Baltics and UK operations earlier this year.

Jan Liljegren will be employed as COO in Bergs Timber and vice president in Bergs Timber Production, while Sampsa Auvinen, CEO of Norvik since 2009, will leave Bergs at the end of September.

Mr Liljegren was recently employed with Södra Wood as production manager. He will become part of the group management. After the Bergs acquisition, Mr Auvinen has been involved in the integration of the Norvik companies to Bergs Timber.

He was a board member in Bergs Timber from 2016 until May 2018. Bergs has thanked Mr Auvinen for his service with the company.
