Södra’s New CLT Facility in Värö, Sweden, Increases Its CLT Capacity Tenfold

On Wednesday (3-15-23), Södra opened a new cross-laminated timber (CLT) facility on the west coast of Sweden. The plant, located in Värö, is one of the largest in Sweden and will permit a tenfold increase in Södra’s production capacity.

In the press release, Södra said the Värö facility has the capacity to supply framing materials for approximately 4,000 homes per year. By investing in production at Värö, the company says it will be close to several developing regions for CLT usage in the Nordic region. Logistically, products can also easily be shipped to international markets from the port in Varberg.

Södra also noted that its CLT production is completely fossil free, as it uses energy produced at its own pulp mill in Värö.
