A strong value chain​​

Our business areas create a strong value chain where we use wood as efficiently as possible at every stage. This includes making use of by-products in production units and energy production. All of the products we manufacture are recyclable and can be used to produce energy at the end of their life cycles, among other purposes.

Metsä Forest

Reliable wood supply and excellent forest services

Wood supply and forest services

We are the market leader in wood and energy wood supply in Finland. We serve forest owners as well as industries that make use of wood.

Our core competences are reliable wood supply and increasing the value and profitability of forest assets. We provide our 104.000 owner-members with tailored wood trade services and forest and nature management services, both online and through forest specialists. In spring 2015, we became the first company in Finland to engage in online wood trade.

We promote sustainable forest management. We know the origin of the wood that we purchase, and we support the PEFC™ and FSC® forest certification systems. We supply high-quality roundwood and energy wood at competitive prices to the business areas of Metsä Group and to other customers. Most of the wood we purchase is from Finland, but we also actively procure wood from nearby areas.

Metsäliitto Cooperative’s FSC logo licence code is FSC-C014476.

Wood products made with industrial efficiency

Wood products

We manufacture wood products for the needs of our construction, industrial and distribution customers.  We have a strong position in Europe and ambitious growth targets in Asia and the United States.

We focus on the industrial production and sale of high-quality wood products. Our most important products include northern sawn timber, plywood and Kerto® LVL. Our core strategy is to aim for industrial efficiency in all of our operations.
In terms of customer accounts, we emphasise commitment to key customers, reliability and high quality.

We use northern wood – the world’s best renewable raw material – that is always traceable to sustainably managed northern forests. Our production units are located in the middle of northern forests, which ensures that raw materials are always available.

Our wood products combine responsibility with strength, light weight and uniform quality. Northern wood also has excellent acoustic properties and minimal thermal expansion. We are continuously developing our production units to improve our efficiency, and we never compromise on quality, safety or environmental values.
