Next to Braviken Paper Mill outside Norrköping, Sweden, we have built one of Scandinavia’s largest sawmills. Braviken Sawmill is a modern sawmill for the efficient manufacture of spruce construction timber.
A strategic investment was carried out in the summer of 2015, aimed at diversifying sawn timber production to include pine, and at enabling the production of decking and joists for outdoor purposes.
We obtain our raw material from forests in the local area. "Building with Wood" is our name for the product range that comes from BravikenGran (Braviken Spruce).
Our modern plant makes efficient and large-scale manufacturing possible. The timber is already sorted by strength during the sawmill process. It is dried using the latest equipment, including pressure frames and conditioning, to obtain dimensionally stable products. The timber is predominantly processed on the spot at the sawmill. We then plane and trim according to our customers’ wishes. Our timber lengths are 3.6–6.0 metres, with the capability to trim down to two shorter lengths.
One of the sawmill’s specialities is lengths of 6.0 metres. This is made possible by trimming long logs in the forest. Many customers demand extra long timber for their products. As there are few sawmills in Scandinavia capable of producing 6-metre lengths, this is of particularly great interest to us.
The proximity of Braviken to the port of Norrköping is a strength. There we have direct access to large handling capacity and a transport network out into the world by sea, rail and road.
