Spruce timber for furniture manufacturing

​​"We needed a partner that could guarantee a reliable supply of spruce of the highest quality. A 100% certainty of the environmental sustainability of the timber is also essential to us."

Mr. Guo Xiangyang, Chairman & CEO, Sampo Furniture​

Challenge

Sampo Furniture is a major Chinese furniture manufacturer based in Shenzhen. They specialize in spruce furniture for children and teenagers for the Chinese market and thus high-quality Nordic spruce is a cornerstone of the company’s success.

Solution

The attractive, timeless and light characteristics of spruce make it the best raw material for Sampo Furniture’s high quality products. The traceability of northern wood is another of its key benefits. Spruce is easily planed, and moderately soft but still tough. It is a good choice for machining because its annual rings are tightly spaced, its knots relatively small and soft and its grain is straight. Finished products are attractive in part due to the consistent structure of the raw material.

Results

Metsä Wood’s in-depth joint planning with Sampo has resulted in a true understanding of the customer’s requirements – regarding production processes and also end products. Selecting the best choice of raw material already at the sawmill is the key to optimum yield in both processing and in the furniture’s finished appearance and functionality. Sampo Furniture appreciates the value of fit-for-purpose material – as well as its economic and environmental benefits.
