Strategy & values

Industrial efficiency - the two word strategy

In an increasingly responsible world, wood gains in importance every day. Metsä Wood wants to play a crucial part in the development and growth of this global market.

Our strategy can be defined in two words: industrial efficiency. Our focus is on industrial scale production and sales of premium quality engineered wood products. We support our customers, allowing them to focus on their core business and their growth.

We know that there are three steps to industrial efficiency: commitment, reliability and quality.

We are a forerunner in creating value with premium-quality sustainable Nordic wood. Our values are responsible profitability, reliability, cooperation and renewal.


Customer understanding turns handshakes into partnerships

Industrial efficiency does not mean bulk production, it means offering innovative products for demanding industrial scale customers. We serve our construction, industrial, distribution partners because we complement each other best.

Industrial efficiency materialises only when all parties are committed to true partnership. We innovate industrial scale engineered wood products, but also processes and production. And we always do it together with our partners throughout the supply chain so that the processes fit seamlessly together.


In a simpler process a fewer things can go wrong

Because we are reliable, you become more efficient – you hold less stock, need less capital, warehousing and can reduce handling costs. To achieve reliability, we are constantly trying to simplify and enhance our processes, organisation and ways of interacting with you.

We are financially strong, which means your supply is secure. In the end, however, it's all about people. We are reliable because our people are.


No surprises – just constant improvement

We have the best renewable resource in the world to work with: 100% traceable wood from sustainably managed certified Nordic forests. Because it grows so slowly, it is strong, light and consistent in appearance. In addition, Nordic wood has superb acoustic properties and minimal thermal expansion.

Our facilities are surrounded by this sustainably managed resource. We are constantly improving our production units to improve efficiency and ensure that there are no surprises when it comes to product quality, safety and the environmental performance.
