Stora Enso’s investment in production unit for CLT in Gruvön, Sweden, is proceeding according to investment schedule.
The construction of the new CLT mill located alongside the Gruvön sawmill started with groundworks in October 2017. “We want to be role models in using wood in construction. Other than the groundwork and reinforced concrete columns, we are building the whole new mill out of CLT by Stora Enso,” says Pär Larsson, the Mill Manager for Gruvön.
“I think this is a unique opportunity we have here to build our premises sustainably,” he continues. The production is scheduled to begin during the first quarter of 2019.
Stora Enso announced in July 2017 that it will invest EUR 45 million in a new production unit for cross laminated timber (CLT) in connection with its Gruvön Mill in Sweden. The investment will further enhance Stora Enso’s position as a global provider of high quality engineered wooden elements and as a market leader in CLT.
