Our three modern sawmills make Holmen Timber a complete supplier of wood products, including construction, joinery and packaging timber. The location of our sawmills close to the sea, railways and roads makes for efficient transport solutions to our customers mainly in Scandinavia, the rest of the EU, the UK, the Middle East and North Africa.
Our high level of technology, including one of the world’s fastest planing mills at Braviken Sawmill, leads to a higher degree of finishing and enables product development with a greater focus on optimising wood characteristics in the log to suit the end customer’s product. We develop sawing and drying in cooperation with customers to minimise wastage and maximise customer benefit.
Iggesund Sawmill and Braviken Sawmill form bio co-locations with their neighbouring paperboard and paper mills. This means that all parts of the raw material are put to use in a cycle in which chips from the sawmills become raw material in pulp production and the residual products are used as biofuel to produce energy and district heating. In return, the steam from the paperboard and paper mills is used in the drying processes at the sawmills. Read more.
