Södra increases CLT production at Värö mill in Sweden
Södra’s facility for cross-laminated timber (CLT) in Värö, Sweden, will increase to two shifts and four new employees will be taken on, thereby doubling the production capacity, as the company says in a recent press release.
“Production commenced at the facility two months ago and the number of inquiries is continuously increasing. The industry has understood that wooden structural systems entail sustainable and efficient construction,” said Urban Blomster, Business Development Manager Building Systems.
The production increase is being implemented in a construction market where several recent reports have indicated a slowdown in construction. The trend for Södra is in the opposite direction.
“Demand for wooden structural systems for large construction projects is on the rise and we have therefore chosen to raise the production rate. We offer building systems and products such as building components and fasteners, as well as new digital services to simplify and gain better control over the construction process,” said Urban Blomster.
To meet demand, Södra is also evaluating a second CLT facility at the combined plant in Värö.
