Metsä Wood in brief
In an ever more responsible world, the importance of wood keeps growing.
Metsä Wood provides the premium-quality wood products for construction, industrial and distribution customers. Our aim is to be the best partner for these customers, opening up the almost endless possibilities of wood.
We use 100% traceable wood from northern forests, a sustainable raw material of the finest quality. Our facilities are surrounded by these forest, which ensures a never-ending reliable supply. Our primary products are Nordic premium timber, birch and spruce plywood and Kerto® LVL (laminated veneer lumber).
Our key strength is industrial efficiency delivered through true commitment, reliability and quality. We continuously demand more from both ourselves and our partners.
In the UK, we operate from four manufacturing and distribution sites with principle activities based around our softwood planing lines at Boston and Widnes; MDF processing at Boston and the manufacture of Finnjoist i-beams at King's Lynn. In addition we have a timber treatment facility at King's Lynn.
We offer a one stop shop that is valued by both our customers and supply chain partners which gives us a unique position in the market today.
