FM Timber Group invests

FM Timber Group will invest in improved value yields and sawn timber grades at their Pihtipudas sawmill.

The implementation of investments has already begun. In the first phase, the current log sorter will be replaced with an X-ray line, and at the end of the year, the saw feed will also be renewed with the introduction of modern log profiling that utilizes camera technology.

Above all, the investments will result in more efficient sawing through more optimized utilization of raw material. This will in turn lead to better quality end-product for the customers.

In addition, investments have been made in the Kiihtelysvaara drying plant, where three new chamber kilns are now used for drying 6-metre-long sawn timber, and timber sizing is done with a new cutting saw.
