International demand for wood products is once again contributing to a strong quarterly result for Moelven. Operating income for the year’s three first months was NOK 140.9 million.
We need to use more wood in construction in order to achieve the climate goals, but at the same time use as little materials as possible.
Moelven Østerdalsbruket in Koppang has invested NOK 10 million in a new chip terminal. This makes the sawmill better able to utilise the entire log.
“We’re probably a bit obstinate. Startups like this one are few and far between in the wood processing industry. For us, it means increased value creation from local resources.”
To Malin and Kim, HSE is an important part of everyday work, and they believe this is how it should be for all employees of Moelven.
The impact of forestry on the climate.
Moelven has entered into a cooperation agreement with SCA to deliver pellets from Moelven’s new pellet factory.
This is the clear call made in an editorial in the international news magazine, The Economist. It has taken a closer look at Mjøstårnet and the global construction industry.
It all started as a crazy idea; a wish to showcase what is possible to build using timber. Now the idea has grown to be 85,4 meters tall, and Mjøstårnet holds the record as the tallest timber building in the world.
In 2018 Moelven delivered its best fourth quarter of all time, and is on course for an annual result that is the second best in the group’s history.
