Setra’s Board has decided to invest around SEK 390 million in the Malå sawmill, which will increase production in the first phase from the current 160,000 m3 per year to 350,000 m3 per year.
“It’s incredibly positive for the Board to greenlight this modernisation programme for the site, which will both sharpen our competitiveness and drive up the value added. The investment will enable us to produce high-quality products with superb accuracy and precision. The whole production line will be ultramodern, almost doubling output,” adds Katarina Levin.
The facility in Malå will have a new log intake, a new saw line, an upgraded trim saw and a new drying unit. This new unit will deliver higher-quality products, more efficient production and a lower climate footprint through smarter processes compared with the current facilities.
“We’re very pleased that the Board has approved our investment plan. This is going to mean so much not just for Setra but also for Malå and Västerbotten’s inland areas,” states Marlene Bergström, Mill Manager Setra Malå.
