Bygdsiljum is in Västerbotten County and this is where the Group’s head office is located, along with its largest sawmill in terms of capacity. At the Bygdsiljum facility, there is large-scale production of sawn lumber and processed wood products, along with production of both glulam and cross-laminated timber.
Production of glulam started in the 1960s and today, Martinsons is one of the Nordic region’s largest manufacturers of glulam. A new grading sawmill was inaugurated at Bygdsiljum in 2010. It was an investment of SEK 110 million and it demonstrates that Martinsons remains on the cutting edge of technology, with a leading position in Europe.
Martinsons started manufacturing cross-laminated timber in 2003 and in 2017, the new cross-laminated timber factory at Bygdsiljum was opened. This investment of SEK 80 million tripled our annual production capacity, which now 22,000 m3.
