SCA Timber includes seven sawmills, wood-processing units, distribution and wholesale operations. The total production of solid-wood products amounts to 2.2 million cubic meters.
The sawmills are strategically located with direct access to SCA's forest holdings and some of them are among the most modern mills in Scandinavia with large volume capacity.
Our customers are mainly within the wood industry and building material merchants in which we not only offer a high quality solid-wood product but also supplier concepts. The concepts includes, for example, expert knowledge, efficient technology and complementary service solutions within distribution, warehouse and IT. For building material merchants we offer One-stop-shop distribution solution with a well-adapted product range and high service.
"Control of the complete value chain – from seedling to finished product!"
Continuously, we are working to cut costs in processing and supply chain from forest to finished product. Products which are processed increasingly to fit our priority customers' specific needs and specifications. With the latest technology like automatic sorting, scanning, cutting, finger-jointing and lamella gluing, we increase both the share and integration of further processed wood products in production.
The high quality of slow-grown northern pine/spruce with its tight growth rings and unique fibre characteristics makes it highly suitable for applications where the wood is visible. The base of raw materials to SCA Timber's product program is supplied from SCA's own forest holdings in northern Sweden, which comprises 2.6 million hectares. SCA's forestry operations are certified in accordance with the standards of the FSC®(Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC™ (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification).
The product programme includes for example, furniture material, solid-wood flooring material, window material, door frames, panelling, cladding, decking/garden timber and building/construction timber. Even the byproducts from the sawmills, sawdust, bark and chips, gain new application areas as heating pellets, biofuel and as raw material to new products within the pulp and paper industry.
