Stora Enso will divest its Hartola production unit to the Finnish wood products company Pyhännän Rakennustuote Oy. The Hartola unit in Finland produces pre-fabricated wooden housing modules and is part of Stora Enso’s Wood Products division.
In addition to the divestment agreement, Stora Enso and Pyhännän Rakennustuote have signed a partnership agreement which aims to further increase the use of wood in construction. The financial effects of the transaction on Stora Enso are not significant.
“This transaction supports the growth of both companies. We will continue providing Pyhännän Rakennustuote with massive wooden construction materials from classic sawn goods to elements such as cross laminated timber (CLT) and laminated veneer lumber (LVL),” says Jari Suominen, Head of Stora Enso’s Wood Products division. “We will create a strong partner network to provide competitive offerings and to promote the use of wood in construction.”
In spring 2016 Stora Enso launched Building Systems by Stora Enso in Central Europe. This architectural guideline is linked to building systems that aim to increase the use of wood as construction material. These systems will be launched in Finland and Scandinavia in the second half of 2016.
“With our newly launched Building Systems and the new LVL line in Varkaus complementing our existing product portfolio, we are ready to grow with our partners,” says Jari Suominen.
