Södra investing for next-generation construction

  • 24 Oct 2019

Södra has decided to invest in an additional CLT facility at Värö, as it aims to become a leader in the Nordic region.

Lars Idermark, President and CEO, commented: “Society’s driving forces for reducing greenhouse gas emissions are strong, and the interest in sustainable construction is growing in the market.

“A higher rate of timber construction is playing a key role in the growing bioeconomy. It is also an important step in our mission to process the wood raw material delivered by our 52,000 forest-owning members.”

The development of cross-laminated timber (CLT) for structural building components is about to change the construction market.

Industrialisation and prefabrication allow faster on-site installation, and environmental impacts can be halved by using timber frames for the construction of multi-storey buildings instead of other material.

Another benefit is that timber is perceived to promote a better indoor climate for residents.

Södra Building Systems’ comprehensive offering includes building systems and products such as building components and fasteners, as well as new digital services to simplify and gain better control over the construction process.

The focus is on driving the development of timber-based solutions in the construction and residential sectors.

Jörgen Lindquist, President of the Södra Wood business area, commented: “With our technical and digital solutions for both production and finances, we are now creating the conditions for next-generation construction.

“We will be offering a complete product portfolio to the market, enabling us to grow together with our customers and partners.”

The new facility will be established at the combined plant in Värö, where Södra’s first CLT facility has already been co-located with Södra’s pulp mills and sawmills.
