Innovations are created together

Our aim is to find new uses for our raw material, together with existing and new partners and customers.

We invest in research and development for the long term. We strive to refine the features of our existing products as well as developing completely new products. In addition, we invest in growth by building modern production facilities. For example, our Kemi and Äänekoski bioproduct mills are the largest wood-processing plants in the Northern Hemisphere, producing pulp and a broad range of other bioproducts. Our innovation company Metsä Spring invests in innovations and technologies in the field of wood-based circular bioeconomy.
