Sawn timber products

Sawn timber products



We upgrade northern softwood of the highest quality into premium Nordic Timber products. The wood raw material we use is known for its high-quality and consistent appearance. Its dense grains and lightness combined with its superb strength make it an ideal material for any application that requires high quality.

We guarantee you excellent delivery reliability with our six sawmills: we have five in Finland and one in Russia. Our sawmills make the most of the natural properties of the first-rate northern wood raw materials and, thanks to our cutting-edge production technology, we are able to customise our sawn timber according to your individual wishes.
