Södra has announced that it is investing in a new facility that will increase its production capacity of timber frame ten-fold. The new facility is being built at their combined facility in Värö, Sweden, where Södra’s first CLT facility is located. The new facility is expected to be operational in mid-2022 and is expected to be able to deliver frame material for 4,000 homes each year, representing a ten-fold increase in production compared with current levels at Södra’s existing facility. Lotta Lyrå, President and CEO of Södra, said in a a statement that “Increasing timber-frame construction is a key aspect of the climate transition and there are multiple advantages with CLT. In addition to at least halving the climate impact compared with other material, this technology also results in a shorter construction time. This is a key milestone in Södra’s initiative to become one of the Nordic region’s leading players in CLT.”
