SCA invests MSEK 500 in new saw line at Tunadal sawmill


SCA invests MSEK 500 in a new saw line at the Tunadal sawmill In Sundsvall, Sweden. This investment will allow for an increase in production to 540 000 cubic meters of spruce wood products per annum.

The new saw line will replace the sawmill’s present three saw lines. The investment will also comprise a rebuild of the raw sorting line and increased kiln capacity.

“This investment will allow us to increase production, but we can also continue to develop a broader product mix in line with market demand”, says Ulf Larsson, president of SCA Forest Products. “We will have state-of-the-art production equipment that is easier to maintain. With this investment, Tunadal is a new and modern sawmill from the sorting of logs to the loading of the finished products.”

The new saw line will be built on reclaimed land, behind the present sawmill. This way construction will not interfere with the sawmill’s production and operations. The new saw line will be operative the autumn of 2016.

Tunadal sawmill produces spruce wood products. The production capacity is
500.000 cubic meters per annum, of which 80.000 is planed products. 140 employees and contractors work at the sawmill.
