New life for sawdust from Moelven
Supporting innovation and identifying new ways to utilise by-products are two areas that Moelven is more than happy to contribute towards. The Wood Region is a project that makes this possible.
What does it mean for me that the products I buy are certified?
It means that you have bought products for which we are able to document that the raw materials originate from sustainable forestry, that the production process adheres to all industry standards and that you can be confident that the products will be of the quality we promise.
Buying local where possible
Smart and larger purchases result in a better climate footprint. “We established a purchasing group at Moelven in 2020. The main purpose is to consolidate all of our agreements and establish new corporate agreements in areas that have a major impact on profitability and sustainability,” says Head of Purchasing for Building Systems, Thomas Hansen.
A sustainable adhesive supplier

Record start of the year for Moelven
Moelven has never seen a better first quarter than in 2021. In the course of the first three months of the year, Moelven saw sales of NOK 3,182 million and an operating profit of NOK 290 million.
Moelven reported one of its strongest results
The result in the year where everything was different was one of the strongest for Moelven of all time. The group reported an operating profit of NOK 662.2 million – an increase of almost NOK 330 million compared to the previous year.
Increased demand for wood products: Moelven recorded a profit figure of NOK 163 million in the third quarter of 2020
Increased focus on renovations and maintenance continue to have a positive effect for Moelven, and the Group can report the highest Q3 revenue in 13 years.
Fatal accident casts gloom over half-year results
13 August was one of the darkest days of Moelven’s history. That day an employee lost his life in a fall accident at Moelven Edanesågen AB in Sweden. “We are unable to celebrate a good half-year result as we have just had a fatal accident,” says CEO Morten Kristiansen of Moelven Industrier ASA.

Demolition will not save the climate
Realising the potential that lies in the buildings we already have means we can save money while sparing the environment and society.
