About Us

During 2024 we will build a state of the art, highly automated glued wood factory in Kohtla-Järve, in the east of Estonia, with production starting in 2025.

The development will create c. 70 new, high skilled, high value jobs on an industrial park just outside of town. Our production unit will use the latest available technology to manufacture products aimed at the construction, furniture and high end packaging sectors, where use of high quality, sustainable and strong product is highly valued and growing.

Across the world Construction is moving away from concrete and to new innovations using glued, laminated wood (Glulam). New techniques and brave architecture see record breaking building products on all continents. Planning consent has just been awarded to the “C6” a 183-metre-tall skyscraper in Perth Australia as an example of what is now possible.

Our goals are not so lofty – but we still aim high….. in the EU legislation has been passed that will increase radically the use of timber in construction as a major step towards the blocs carbon goals and our factory will be well positioned to take advantage of this.

Raw material from certified sustainable sources will ship by a combination of road and sea from Northern Finland and Sweden to our local port of Sillämae. Highly automated production lines, lean business principles and a skilled and motivated workforce will cut, join, and press the timber into boards and posts according to our customers’ exact needs.
