Södra, a forestry cooperative based in Växjö, Sweden, has announced that its complete offering of CLT panels for frame assembly with complementary products and services will now be available in the Danish market starting in September. This is the first step of Södra’s plan to expand their business into Europe.
The business will be part of the Södra Building Systems business segment, with Kenny Holm serving as the new Marketing Manager for Denmark. All aspects of production will be done at Södra’s combined facilities in Varberg Municipality in Sweden.
Urban Blomster, Head of Market and Business Development for Södra Building Systems said of the expansion, “We are seeing a large interest in Södra’s CLT outside Sweden, and Denmark is the first step in our international establishment. They have come a long way in sustainable construction and are phasing out traditional materials, mainly in favor of CLT. Moreover, Södra’s geographic location in south-west Sweden is ideal for this market. With Kenny as Marketing Manager, we will gain valuable momentum in establishing a strong market position and launching our offering.”
