Renholmen Helps Double Production in Malå

he sawmill in Malå is making major investments to double its production. Among other things, a building is being erected for a new saw line, and investments have also been made to rebuild the green sorting system.

The sawmill in Malå was founded in 1946 and is part of the Setra sawmill group, with Sveaskog as a co-owner. In 2021, the decision was made to invest in the facility to achieve products of a higher quality, a more efficient flow through the sawmill, and a lower carbon footprint, as well as to double the production volume from 170,000 cubic metres to 350,000 cubic metres.
“Renholmen’s delivery means that the new sawmill is connected to the existing upgraded green sorting system,” says Urban Vikström, sales representative at Renholmen.

The rebuilding involves a new and modern green sorting system with the latest equipment, both mechanically and in terms of automation.

Installation of the system will begin in the autumn of 2024, and the work will be completed before the end of the year. The old saw line will continue to produce as usual during the construction period.

Around 70 employees work in Malå in the production of sawn and processed pine logs. Most of it is exported to Asia and Europe.
