Hallsta Paper Mill, located in Hallstavik, is spearheading Holmen’s development into a speciality paper company and it is here that many of our speciality products are developed and produced. Paper from Hallsta Paper Mill is eco-certified and delivers significant cost efficiencies. In addition to distribution by road and rail, the mill has its own port, which enhances delivery capacity and allows for flexible delivery solutions.
All three modern sawmills have high technical standards, with a steady increase in finishing options underpinning continuous product development and a strong product range. As a result of the new wood treatment plant and distribution warehouse at Braviken Sawmill, we are able to offer a broader and more attractive range for the construction industry and for builders’ merchants.
Iggesund Sawmill is an innovative and efficient sawmill. The sawmill manufactures pine joinery timber used for interiors such as furniture, windows, doors, staircases and flooring. A horizontal saw enables us to saw pith-free products with fewer cracks and deformations, which also brings major drying benefits.
Located just outside Norrköping, Braviken Sawmill is the largest and most modern sawmill in Scandinavia. The sawmill manufactures construction and joinery timber in spruce and pine. A wood treatment plant and distribution warehouse see us offer a broad and attractive range directly to builders’ merchants and the construction industry.
Linghem Sawmill is a niche small log sawmill with an integrated planing mill. Here we produce sawn and planed wood products for joinery and construction purposes in 3-metre lengths. Production at Linghem also complements the products at Braviken Sawmill, helping to strengthen our market position particularly in Sweden and the UK.
Holmen wholly or partly owns 21 hydro power stations located on the Umeälven, Faxälven, Gideälven, Iggesundsån, Ljusnan and Motala Ström rivers. Normal annual production amounts to about 1100 GWh.
Holmen is a major land owner and has the potential to develop its land holdings by establishing wind farms on its own land with good wind conditions.
Along with the Eurofideme 2 investment fund, Holmen has built the Varsvik wind farm a few kilometres from its paper mill in Hallstavik.
In our business areas, we turn our forest holdings into wood products for sustainable building, cost-effective paper, premium paperboard and renewable energy.
