Woodsafe Timber Protection has acquired the Rescue Services fire testing ground site in Västerås, Sweden.

The company, one of the Nordic region’s leading suppliers of fire-retardant treated wood products, has acquired the 70,000m2 site as part of its continual growth and expansion policy.

The acquisition means unhindered expansion of the plant, new products and increased efficiency, capacity and R&D opportunities.

“What started with a vision and just two bare hands has today become a gigantic landmark to ensure the company’s future expansion.”
