"Unique opportunity to further develop the lumber industry"

Moelven with greatest investment of all time
Moelven will modernise and develop capacity at Moelven Edanesågen AB and Moelven Valåsen AB. Overall, the group will invest more than SEK 600 million in the two sawmills in the years to come.
Sustainability begins in the forest
Increasing the number of certified forest owners and delivering training on more considerate felling are two of Moelven Skog’s priority areas. This makes us even more sustainable, from planting the tree until it is used as a construction material for your home.
Digital solutions to save energy
Every year, Moelven’s production entities in Sweden are responsible for energy consumption corresponding to that of 22,600 detached homes. But what is all this energy used for?
What is the tree used for?
At Moelven, we make a living from managing a renewable natural resource and we are committed to doing so in the best possible manner. By using the various parts of the tree for what they are best suited to and by using residual raw materials for the production of e.g. pellets and biofuels, we can fully utilise the resources of the forest.
What we have learned from the pandemic
The Covid-19 pandemic has been challenging for our employees in 2020. But it has also created team spirit and new ways of working. These are some of our experiences.
Sustainability throughout the value chain
Sustainability is one of Moelven’s core values, but what does it mean for our suppliers, employees and customers?
