SCA Timber is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of wood-based products, with an annual production capacity of 2.1 million cubic metres. The product range is supplemented with distribution solutions for customers in the wood industry and builders’ merchant sector.

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.

Market

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.

There is a global market for our products in which our own sales organisation ensures a strong local market presence. We offer a high customer value, combined with high volume and low production cost.

With modern pine and spruce sawmills, wood-processing units and high quality raw material, we are one of Europe's leading suppliers of solid-wood products for visible end-use.

SCA Timber's business concept is to deliver the best mix of wood-based products, services, knowledge and information. We want our customers to see us as a first-class supplier with regard to product quality, service, accessibility and professional treatment.

Supply chain

"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.

Raw material

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).

Products

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.

Control of the complete value chain – from seedling to finished product!

Logistics

We have a global marketplace for our products, thus requiring effective logistics to ensure that our products reach our customers in the best manner possible.

SCA Timber is responsible for agreements relating to the transport of products between our units and onward delivery to the customer. We are not responsible for the delivery of raw materials to the units or the transportation of by-products (wood-chips, shavings, bark) from our units.

Own harbours

SCA Timber operates its own harbours at the sawmills in Rundvik, Lugnvik, Bollsta and Tunadal. Our harbours have extensive experience of loading wood products and we are continuously endeavouring to increase loading capacity while retaining our focus on quality.

Web portal for freight planning

SCA Timber procures and books truck, railway and container freights on the Lasset.se web portal, which is an online transparent tool for the procurement and booking of freights. The system is transparent, providing clear information between the parties as well as access to statistics and follow-up information. It is used primarily in Sweden, but also for truck freights in England.
