High-quality sawn timber from Nordic wood

We are one of Europe’s largest sawn timber producers. We make and sell high-quality sawn timber that we produce from Nordic wood raw material. Our product portfolio includes pine and spruce sawn timber and it is developed in close co-operation with our customers to ensure our offering meets their requirements.

Metsa Fibre has four sawmills operating in Finland, holding a total production capacity of 2 million cubic meters. We use high-quality Nordic spruce (Picea abies)   as the raw material in our sawmills in Renko and Vilppula. Whereas, our sawmills located in Lappeenranta and Rauma process high-quality Nordic pine (Pinus sylvestris) to produce our sawn timber products.

Sustainable sawn timber production 

Our sawmills make the most of the natural properties of first-rate traceable Nordic wood. Nordic softwood is known for its high quality and consistent appearance, as well as its dense grain, lightness and strength. These properties, combined with our efficient production lines with modern sawmilling technologies, enable us to produce high quality sawn timber with precise dimensions and excellent drying results.

All Metsä Fibre’s sawn timber products are responsibly produced with wood from sustainably managed Nordic forests and the wood we use is traceable. Our sawn timber production process results in close to zero CO2 emissions.

Optimising timber quality by raw material efficiency

We are committed tobeing a frontrunner in resource efficiency. We work with you to ensure that the sawn timber we deliver has the properties your end products require. This includes ensuring the appropriate moisture content and visual qualities, as well as excellent dimensional stability and strength.. It is important to avoid wood defects in timber such as knots, splits, pith, wane, bow and crook . Dead knots in wood formed during the growth of tree can determine the overall strength and stability of the sawn timber and may cause visual concerns for the end product. Metsä Fibre minimises such flaws by optimising the raw material quality, and the professionalism in the sawing process, as well as considering customer’s need. We have a wide selection of sawn timber products with variety of wood quality grades and timber sizes.
