Isojoen Saha Announces Significant Investment in Its Isojoki, Finland, Sawmill

Finland’s Isojoen Saha announced on Friday that it will build a new main sawmill line. The investment is one of the largest in the company’s 74-year history and continues the sawmill’s long-term operational development program.

Groundbreaking and construction on the new mill began in May and is projected to be completed in 2025, just in time to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Isojoki sawmill.

The new, modern main sawmill line will diversify and streamline Isojoki Sawmill’s production and will allow for improved utilization of wood fiber coming to the mill. The new mill will be set on a property area of 2,200 square meters that includes sawmill feed, a new sawmill line, by-product processing from sawmill production, and a feed and intermediate storage system for fresh sorting of sawn timber.

Production will continue on the current lines throughout construction, so there will be no interruption in deliveries. The investment in the new main sawmill line is co-financed by the European Union.
