Sandåsa Timber AB continues a long sawmill tradition. Our two sawmills are both located in old mills and carry old industrial history.
ÅKERS SAWMILL, ÅKERS STYCKEBRUK
The sawmill in Åkers Styckebruk has been in its present location at the lake Visnaren and Råckstaån since the end of the 19th century when a steam saw was established there. One kilometer westwards, Gustav Vasa founded a crown saw in the 16th century, which catered to the needs of Åkers Styckebruk and Gripsholms Castle. Sandåsa acquired the saw in 1987 and has over the years developed and adapted the plant to modern production requirements.
In 2006, a brand new saw-line was built, linked to today's most modern control system. Increased saw exchange of the expensive raw material and faster and more flexible production changes were the result.
In 2008, a camera sorting system was set for timber quality determination into the adjusting plant where the timber can be sorted in regards to quallity and dimension with great accuracy.
Production capacity 110 000 m3 sawn goods
Distribution 1/3 pine och 2/3 spruce
A large part of the volume produced goes to the wood processing facility in Sandåsa
Thicker dimensions of pine is mostly exported to the Middle East, North Africa and England
Some parts of the volume produced goes to industrial customers in Sweden
FORSSJÖ SAWMILL, FORSSJÖ BRUK
The sawmill in Forssjö Bruk also carries on an old tradition of use. In Forssjö Bruk operations have been conducted for over 500 years. As in Åkers Styckebruk, the iron ore, the water and the forest are the common denominators.
Since the acquisition of the sawmill in 2012, major investments have been made in improving, modernizing and rationalize the technology in order to increase the saw exchange and production. In 2014, production changed from having only sawn pine to also spruce. The adjusting plant in Forssjö has also been equipped with a camera sorting system to rationalize and quality assure wood sorting.
Production capacity 100 000 m3 sawn goods
Distribution 2/3 pine och 1/3 spruce
