The Mayr-Melnhof Holz Holding Group Agrees to Acquire Swedish Sawmill Group Bergkvist Siljan From ESSVP IV

The Mayr-Melnhof Holz Holding Group, one of the leading companies in the European sawmilling and engineered wood products industry, has signed an agreement to acquire the Swedish sawmill group Bergkvist Siljan from ESSVP IV. This continues the consistent expansion and growth strategy of the Austrian wood-processing group.

The closing is expected to take place during the 1Q 2022, subject to approval of the relevant competition authorities. It has been agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

The new sites Insjön, Mora, and Blyberg — right in the middle of Sweden — complement the existing sawmills in Leoben (Austria), Paskov (Czech Republic), and Efimovskij (Russia) perfectly and create a starting point for the market entry of the Mayr-Melnhof Holz Group into Scandinavia.
