The investment in Gruvön sawmill amounts to EUR 45 million. The project has proceeded according to plan from the investment decision made in July 2017 to the start of commercial deliveries in the first quarter of 2019. The investment has had a total employment impact of 60 new employees for the mill. This is Stora Enso’s third production unit for cross laminated timber as the company already has two production units in Austria. The production capacity of the new unit at Gruvön sawmill will be 100 000 m3 annually, equalling enough material for approximately 4 500 normal sized apartments. The CLT elements are made of spruce.
