SCA Wood inaugurates new SKr80m Tunadal planing line

6 November 2018

SCA Wood’s new SKr80m planing mill at Tunadal has been inaugurated.

The investment means increased productivity and better prerequisites for product development and innovations.

The new planing mill includes a new raw material intake, new splitting line and new packaging line.

Today, cladding, studs and roofpanels are produced, are produced at the mill from spruce from the northern Sweden. From now on cladding will be one of the main products.

“With this investment we can meet our customers needs and offer them more competitive products,” said Joakim Nehrer, sales and marketing director Scandinavia at SCA Wood.

“This milestone is an important part for both Tunadal’s and SCA’s development. The previous band saw has been replaced with a split saw which creates a more homogeneous surface. This surface contributes to decreased waste of paint, which is totally in line with our sustainability work.

“We have more than doubled our capacity with our new planing mill.

During the inauguration Jerry Larsson, the president of SCA Wood, gave a speech and the guest got a guided tour at the new planing mill.
