Sawmill and treatment acquisitions
Södra has acquired a sawmill and additional timber treatment facility in Sweden. Ture Johanssons Trävaru AB sawmill in Klevshult produces approximately 100,000 m³ of sawn timber annually, while AB Tenhults Impregneringsverk nearby in Götafors pressure treats the same volume. They join Södra’s existing six sawmills and two treatment plants in Sweden, and its one sawmill in Finland.
The new sawmill and timber treatment facility will strengthen Södra’s customer offering in the building trade and provide strategic capacity in an area where Södra already has a stable raw material supply, but lacks industrial operations.
“The companies have a long history in the area and will enable us to grow more together with our customers. We are looking forward to continuing to develop the operations together with our new employees in Klevshult and Vaggeryd,” said Peter Jhaveri, Interim President of the Södra Wood business area.
“Ture Johanssons Trävaru and Tenhults will strengthen Södra’s customer offering and market for wood. This is in line with our Group strategy and will provide us with better conditions for sustainable and profitable growth,” said Lotta Lyrå, Södra’s President and CEO.
