Gällö Timber has invested 10m Swedish Krona (SEK) in a new control system for its saw line, a new three-dimension log measuring system and a system for turning and optimising the yield of every single log.

“This investment gives us the technology for making the best possible use of the wood raw material,” said Urban Wiklund, president of Gällö Timber. “We will be able to get the highest possible value out of every single sawlog.”

Gällö Timber is jointly owned by Persson Invest and SCA Timber and has invested more than SEK60m in its sawmill since 2010, during which time it has also increased production by 100%.
