Södra makes further investments at Värö sawmill19 February 2020
Södra’s investments in the sawmill at Värö, are primarily in final trimming and drying, but also in log sorting, sawing and green sorting. Investment will also be made in increased drying capacity and an automatic grading system will be installed.
“In April last year, we announced our plans to build a cross-laminated timber (CLT) facility at Värö.” said Jörgen Lindquist, president of the Södra Wood business area.
“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,”.
“We will also be able to offer a higher proportion of planed products from Värö. That is positive, because we see continued growth in the market for processed products. In turn, that will also provide opportunities for higher pellet volumes,” said Jörgen.
When investments in the production of CLT at Värö are completed, Södra will be one of the leading players in solid construction timber in the Nordic region. The investments in the sawmill are scheduled for completion by late autumn 2021.
