Kerto LVL (laminated veneer lumber) is a construction material, which combines material efficiency with the high added value of wood. Kerto LVL’s excellent technical performance makes it suitable for very versatile construction uses such as elements and modular construction.
The new mill will have a direct employment impact of around 150 new jobs. It will also add some 200 jobs to its direct value chain. The employment impact of the construction phase is estimated to be approximately 1,000 person-years. The new mill will use around 400,000 cubic metres of log procured from Finland. Metsä Group currently produces Kerto LVL products in Lohja and Punkaharju in Finland.
