On October 28, 2022, SCA and Holmen communicated that the companies intended to carry out a feasibility study for a jointly owned sawmill in Rundvik, Västerbotten County in Sweden.
SCA and Holmen have now conducted the feasibility study regarding a jointly owned sawmill. The study shows that the conditions to jointly create a large-scale and competitive operation are good. Work now continues to evaluate the different development options that have been identified.
Holmen produces sawn and refined wood products for joinery, construction and builders’ merchants. Following the acquisition of Martinsons in 2020, Holmen also offer customised solutions in CLT and glulam for climate-smart, large-scale wood construction.
SCA is Europe’s largest private forest owner with 2.7 million hectares and, with its forest holdings at its core, has developed a well-invested industrial operation with sawmills, pulp mills, and manufacturing of packaging paper.
