The pine sawn timber is produced at our sawmills in Lappeenranta, Merikarvia and Rauma in Finland, with a total average capacity of 1.2 million cubic meters, using wood from sustainably managed forests.

Our state-of-the-art facilities and technologies allow us to sort and produce our pine sawn timber from the perspective of the properties desired by the customer for their end products. We consider the natural qualities of the wood, annual rings and knot frequency as well as heartwood content or moisture content precisely. For example, pines having few knots serves as a raw material for the heartwood high-quality side boards. The natural structure of pine also enables the products’ impregnation for various sites requiring weather and rot resistance.
