Engineered wood is the ideal way to both battle climate change and house a growing urban population.
At Metsä Wood, we demand more – both of ourselves and our customers. Because excellence is never achieved by settling for the mediocre. Our success is based on our commitment, reliability and quality. Here are some examples of what we've done together with our customers.
How we build now and in the future is critical to economic growth, human wellbeing, and our global climate. In the Fast, Light and Green series Metsä Wood opens up the possibilities of more sustainable, material efficient and productive construction through premium Kerto® LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber).The series provides insightful – even surprising – perspectives on why wood materials are often the superior choice over concrete or steel. We’ve also invited a diverse group of professionals who share our passion for wood to contribute their opinions and insights.
