Sodra Reduces Capacity and Will Close Two Sawmills; Plans Investments for the Sawmills in Langasjo, Varo and Orrefors in Sweden

The structural changes in the sawmill and planing operations are designed to strengthen Sodra's long-term competitiveness. Trade union negotiations have been initiated prior to closure of the softwood sawmills at Ramkvilla and Torsas, as well as production cuts at Monsteras and Varo. Overall, annual production capacity will be reduced by approximately 200,000m3 and approximately 150 employees will be affected by the restructuring. At the same time, major strategic investments are being planned for the remaining sawmills. The hardwood sawmill at Djursdala is also currently undergoing a divestment process. The company's investments are being planned for the sawmills in Langasjo, Varo and Orrefors in Sweden, with the large investment to be made in Langasjo, where the production volume will increase from 280,000m3 to 360,000m3. The company is also looking at possibilities for increased timber housing construction, through its subsidiary Trivselhus.

Lars Idermark, Chief Executive Officer of Södra Skogsägarna ekonomisk förening has stated that the company's timber division Södra Wood Products AB is in need of structure optimisation, indicating that sawmills may be divested.
