SILJAN SWEDEN, 400,000 M3/YEAR OF WOOD PRODUCTIONS, SINCE 1897

The Siljan group is a business group with its core operations in the woodlands of central Sweden. It has a thousand-year old tradition of working with wood. Siljan’s history of working with and processing wood began in 1897. Our business is about managing forests in the best way and processing timber into high-quality products.

He breadth of our operations is a strength of our group and gives us an overall perspective; from the single tree in the forest to the products produced in sawmills and planing mills. This holistic approach allows, for example, our production managers to order exactly the wood – length, diameter, quality – from our contractors that they know that the sawmills have provision for. Siljan Skog is the group’s raw materials company. In addition to purchasing felling rights and timber delivery, Siljan Skog works as the forest owner’s partner with regard to forest care as well as economic and legal issues. Our customers – and suppliers – are forest owners in Dalarna (Dalecarlia), Gästrikland (Gestricia), Jämtland (Lemptia), Härjedalen (Herdalia) and Hälsingland (Helsingia). Thanks to our purchase centres around the operations area, we are never far away. Siljan Skog also conducts trading in biofuels, such as briquettes and bark. Customers are local heating plants and producers of pellets. Siljan Timber AB and Blyberg Timber AB are the group’s sawmill companies. Our sawmills are in Mora and Älvdalen. In total the companies produce about 400,000 cubic meters of sawn timber per year.
The main markets for sawn timber are Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and Japan. Siljan Wood Products AB is the group’s processing company and one of the largest manufacturers of solid hardwood flooring and panelling. Consumers from three continents buy the finished products, which consist of 100 percent natural raw material. Which floor you choose depends largely on where it is intended to be installed, what type of underlay you have and how much space there is to build on. Where you have the possibility of laying the floor directly on joists we recommend one of our solid floors, usually those that are 25 mm and 30 mm thick respectively. If you have a concrete surface or some other type of floor base which does not allow a floor to be affixed with screws we recommend our parquet. Our parquet pinewood floors are available in the same varieties as the solid pinewood floors. Finish and color may vary somewhat between solid and parquet floors because of the difference in the method of manufacture, but the effect is the same. Our parquet floors have a tongue and groove feature which makes them very easy to lay: Thickness: 15 mm - Width: 185 mm (covering).
